Alley gate public spaces protection order (PSPO) review 2020

Closed 18 Oct 2020

Opened 17 Sep 2020


Alley gates have been installed in some areas to help prevent crime and anti-social behaviour.

These gates were installed under Gating Orders or Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs).

These orders are now due for review and we would like you views as to whether they should be extended or not.

Powers to create PSPOs, to allow gates to be installed over the highway to prevent and tackle crime and anti-social behaviour came into force with the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

The orders replaced existing Gating Orders, which automatically became PSPOs as of 20 October 2017.

A PSPO can last for up to three years after which it must be reviewed. If the review supports an extension, and other requirements are satisfied, it may be extended for up to a further three years. There is no limit on the number of times an Order may be reviewed and renewed.

This survey is open until 18th October 2020.
