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.
