Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) - Have your Say

Published: 25 February 2020

The Isle of Wight Council will be at Sandown Town Council offices on Tuesday 24 March 2020, 12 noon until 1:00 pm for you to have your say on Public Spaces Protection Order.
A Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) is legislation that allows a local authority (Isle of Wight Council) to address a particular nuisance or problem that may occur in a particular area. The PSPO works by imposing conditions on the use of that area, that apply to everyone. The Isle of Wight Council's Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs), include the controls that were previously called Dog Control Orders (DCOs), Designated Public Place Orders (DPPOs) and other measures to control antisocial behaviour. The council is turning these previous orders into a single set of PSPOs and is considering some small amendments to the previous orders.
