• PSPOs are tools that councils can use to deal with particular nuisances or problems affecting a specified area that is or may be detrimental to the local community
  • They can be used for a wide range of problems for which there is evidence of impact, and the specified area can be as small as a play park or footpath, or as large as the district as a whole
  • The council must be satisfied on reasonable grounds that the activities have had or are likely to have a detrimental effect on the quality of life of local people
  • The effect is persistent or continuing and likely to be unreasonable and justifies the restrictions imposed.
  • The current Fixed Penalty Notice for a breach of the PSPO is £100
