Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs)

Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPOs) were introduced in 2014 under the 2014 Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act. They sit amongst a broad range of powers and tools to help tackle anti-social behaviour locally. PSPOs are specifically aimed at ensuring public spaces can be enjoyed free from anti-social behaviour. The orders deal with specific nuisances or problems, in a defined area, that are "detrimental to the community‚Äôs quality of life" under the guidance and details of the Act. This is achieved by imposing conditions on the use of a defined area which applies to everyone. 

Proposed PSPOs

Consultation is now open for a proposed PSPO (Gating) for Brackley Gate, Morley / Moor Lane, Little Eaton to deal with anti-social behaviour caused by motorised vehicles and fly-tipping. To take part in the consultation please head over to Erewash Borough Council's Consultation Page.
