Public Spaces Protection Order 2016 - This consultation has now ended

Newcastle City Council faces complex challenges around anti-social behaviour and a number of issues have been raised by the public and businesses that need to be addressed. The council wants to ensure that the city remains a great place to live, work and visit. To help us achieve this, we want to put measures in place to deter anti-social behaviour whilst continuing to ensure that appropriate support is in place to protect some of the most vulnerable people in our city. 

Public Space Protection Orders (‘PSPOs’) were created by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, Chapter 2, Part 4 which came into force on 20 October 2014. They can be used to regulate activities in identified public places that can have a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality. They are designed to ensure that the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour.
