Richmondshire District Council

The Anti-Social Crime and Policing Act 2014 introduced a range of new powers designed to address anti-social behaviour including public space protection orders.

Public space protection orders are intended to deal with a particular nuisance or problem in a specific area that is detrimental to the local community’s quality of life. The orders impose conditions on the use of that area which apply to everyone and are designed to ensure the local community can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour.


Following a period of consultation, the council is proposing to introduce a public space protection order for a defined area in Colburn to deal with ongoing anti-social behaviour issues.
