Public Spaces Protection Orders

A PSPO is a provision created by the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing act 2014. It is intended to deal with particular nuisances or problems in a defined area that are considered to be detrimental to the local community’s quality of life.

It does this by imposing conditions on the use of that area which will apply to everyone so that the majority of people can enjoy the public space.

The council has the power to implement, extend or vary PSPOs with the purpose of stopping individuals or groups committing anti-social behaviour in public spaces.

Current PSPOs

Wirral Council currently has four Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) in force in the borough.
