Public Space Protection Order (PSPO)

A Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) is a control measure created by the 2014 Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act. The orders deal with specific nuisances or problems in a defined area that are "detrimental to the community’s quality of life".

Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs), introduced in 2014, sit amongst a broad range of tools and powers to help tackle anti-social behaviour locally. PSPOs are aimed at ensuring public spaces can be enjoyed free from anti-social behaviour.

The following PSPOs are in force in Basingstoke and Deane:

Alcohol related PSPO in the Town Centre and surrounding parks and open spaces.

Dog related PSPO across the borough.
