Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs)

Introduced by the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, Public Spaces Protection Orders, or PSPOs, replaced Designated Public Place Orders (DPPOs), Gating Orders and Dog Control Orders. 

A PSPO is one of many tools and powers available to the council and our partners as we work to address anti-social behaviour. A PSPO can be used to tackle persistent issues that are having a detrimental effect on people in public spaces. 

Wiltshire Council currently has two PSPOs in effect:
