PSPO Use for Homelessness


“Does the council have a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO), created

under the 2014 Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act, which

includes a ban on rough sleeping and/or “persistent” and/or

“aggressive begging (or similar terms) in its territory?

If yes, please provide details of:

– When it was created and its exact wording.

– The details of Public Space Protection Order and where it applies

– How many people have been prosecuted by the council for failing to

comply with a PSPO? Provide details for each prosecution – date,

conviction etc.”
