Swindon Town Centre PSPO

Public Spaces Protection Orders were introduced as part of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. If a PSPO is breached the perpetrator may receive a £100 on the spot fine or fines of up to £1,000 if the case goes to court.
A Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) has been operational in Swindon Town Centre from November 2015.
Public engagement had been carried out prior and attracted responses from over 700 individuals, to see the results of the public engagement survey please click on the below link: 

Results of the PSPO consultation and survey

Under the Anti-social, Crime & Policing Act 2014 where a PSPO is in force, the local authority that made the order may vary it by increasing or reducing the restricted area or by altering or removing a prohibition or requirement included in the order, or adding a new one.

Since the Town Centre PSPO was launched in November 2015 it has been closely monitored and from listening to public concerns from those visiting the Town Centre it appears that certain activities and areas not included in the order have become a growing concern and are likely or already have a detrimental effect to the quality of life of those in the area, whilst certain current restrictions are no longer of such concern. Therefore Swindon Borough Council and its partner agencies are proposed a variation to the previous order to meet the needs or residents and visitors to the area,

Public engagement took place for 6 weeks as from 27th October 2016 and attracted 151 responses, to see the results of the public engagement survey please click on the below link:
