Public Spaces Protection Order

Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) can be implemented as a means to tackle ongoing anti-social behaviour that is having a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those who live, work in and visit an area.

PSPOs are designed to ensure the law abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces safely, free from anti-social behaviour and places restrictions and requirements on the way people behave within the area covered by the order.

Breach of a PSPO is a criminal offence for which an individual can be summoned to attend court and fined. Fixed Penalty Notices of £100 may also be issued to deal with a breach.

On 14 November 2022 six PSPOs were authorised by South Staffordshire Council and documentation can be viewed below outlining the problem, actions taken, the reason for a PSPO being recommended, consultation responses and a map of the location. For further information, please contact
