What they are and PSPOs in force in Bristol
What is a PSPO
Local Authorities were granted powers to introduce a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
PSPOs are intended to deal with a particular nuisance in a defined public space, where the nuisance behaviour is having a negative impact on the quality of life for those in that public space.
View the full PSPO legislation.
A PSPO can remain in place for up to three years.
Breaking a PSPO may lead to a fixed penalty notice or prosecution.
