Anti-social behaviour PSPO

Anti-social behaviour and nuisance driving

There are already seven ward based “controlled drinking zone” Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) in place across North East Lincolnshire. In January 2017, our public consultation identified anti-social behaviour as the public’s number one concern and as having the largest negative impact on a community or neighbourhood if left unaddressed.

Following on from the Cabinet decision in October 2017 to support a wider intelligence led, Placed Based approach around introducing new PSPOs in defined geographical areas covering a wider range of prohibitions where evidentially appropriate,  a further nine PSPOs have been introduced in North East Lincolnshire. These include seven PSPOs to curb recurring and unreasonable anti-social behaviour within small defined areas, and two borough wide PSPOs to cover dog fouling and dog control zones.

If a Police Constable or authorised person witnesses somebody behaving or displaying any behaviour that is prohibited then they can ask them to leave that area and not return within a 24 hour period. The details of the incident will be recorded and sent to the appropriate department within the council. They will then look into the evidence provided and, if appropriate, a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) of £100 will be issued. Failure to make payment could result in a fine of up to £1,000 at the Magistrates Court.
