Public Spaces Protection Order 2023

Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) are intended to deal with a particular nuisance or problem in  areas that are considered detrimental to the local community’s quality of life.

A PSPO works by imposing conditions on the use of that area which apply to everyone. They are designed to ensure that the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces without experiencing crime or anti-social behaviour. A PSPO remains in place for a period of 3 years unless discharged by the Local Authority.

The Public Spaces Protection Order 2023 will be in force in Ashfield from 1 March 2023, which will restrict public access in the following locations.

  1. Between Spruce Grove and Beacon Drive, Kirkby in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
  2. Between Bentinck Street and Bramley Court, Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
  3. Between Downing Street and North Street, Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
