Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs)

Online anti-social behaviour reporting form

Under section 59 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 the council has the power to designate Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs).

PSPOs are intended to deal with a particular nuisance or problem in a particular area that is detrimental to the local community’s quality of life, by imposing conditions on the use of that area which apply to everyone. They are designed to ensure the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour.

Failure to comply with the requirements of a PSPO can result in a Fixed Penalty Notice of up to £100 being issued. Non-payment of a Fixed Penalty Notice can lead to prosecution and a fine of up to £1,000. As of today’s date no fines have been issued under any of the current PSPOs and there are no open consultations regarding the introduction of further PSPOs in the West Lindsey area.

West Lindsey District Council currently has three PSPOs in effect. The details of each of these orders are available to download below.
