Wycombe district Public Spaces Protection Order

Purpose and detail

The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 introduced a range of new powers designed to address anti-social behaviour.  Wycombe District Council is considering introducing PSPOs for defined areas within High Wycombe to deal with specific, identified, ongoing anti-social behaviour issues.

The purpose of PSPOs is to deal with a particular nuisance or problem in a particular area that is detrimental to the local community’s quality of life, by imposing conditions on the use of that area, which apply to everyone.  They are designed to ensure the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour.
