Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs)
Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPO) in force
Breach of any of the current PSPO are considered as an offence and will incur either a Fixed Penalty Notice of £100 or a fine on prosecution in court of no greater than £1000.
Current orders in place in Warrington
Breaching of a PSPO is an offence which can be dealt with through prosecution or by the issues of a fixed penalty notice.
Before making a PSPO, the Council must be satisfied on reasonable grounds that two conditions are met.
The first condition is that:
- activities carried out in a public place within the authority’s area have had a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality
- it is likely that activities will be carried on in a public place within that area and that they will have such an effect
The second condition is that the effect. Or the likely effect of the activities:
- is, or is likely to be, of a persistent or continuing nature
- is, or is likely to be, such as to make the activities unreasonable
- justifies the restrictions imposed by the order
