Public Spaces Protection Order Eagle Brewery Wharf Consultation 2020Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPO) can be used to regulate activities in particular public places that can have a detrimental effect on the local community. They can help by giving local councils and local police additional powers to tackle antisocial behaviour in specific locations.
We are consulting on the introduction of a PSPO to prohibit a range of activities including group gatherings, nuisance behaviour, excessive noise and psychoactive substances (formally known as ‘legal highs’).
The PSPO will give officers from Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames, Metropolitan Police and designated agencies the right to issue fixed penalty notices of maximum £100 or take offenders to court to face a heftier sentence.
A conviction for breaching the PSPO could carry a fine of up to £1,000.
We ask for your views on whether you agree with the proposal, if you want any alterations to the proposed PSPO and what impact the order may have on you, the local area or local people.
