Public spaces protection orders

Powers to create PSPOs came into force in October 2014. The Orders replace Designated Public Place Orders (DPPOs), Gating Orders and Dog Control Orders. 

Those Orders still in force on 20 October 2017 will automatically become PSPOs including those relating to  Calne, Chippenham, Devizes, Durrington, Malmesbury and Warminster.  

‘It is an offence for any person in a public space within this area to drink alcohol or anything which a police officer or other authorised person, reasonably believes to be alcohol.  In this instance it will only be Wiltshire Police that will issue fines. 

A police officer or  other  authorised person  may  require any  other  person to surrender  anything  in  the  other person’s  possession  which  is, or which the officer  or other authorised person reasonably believes to be, alcohol, or a container for alcohol.

Any person, who without reasonable excuse commits an offence, shall be liable on conviction to a maximum fine of £500’  

Fixed penalty notices will only be applicable to those that have the ability to pay the fine.
