Consultation – Public Spaces Protection Order

The Council is proposing to introduce a number of Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPO) in different areas across the whole borough. The Council is seeking the views of residents on the proposed PSPOs.

PSPO is a provision created by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2015 which intends to deal with a particular nuisance issues within a defined area that are detrimental to the local community’s quality of life.  This is done by imposing conditions on the use of a defined area which applies to everyone. A failure to comply with a PSPO could lead to enforcement action being taken by either the Council or partner agencies.

There are three types of anti-social behaviour that we wish to control.  We propose to tackle anti-social behaviours in cemeteries, at fly tipping hot spots and in our town centres and parks. The locations of these orders and the terms of each order are listed below. We are asking the community to make any comments on the proposals, either in general or on specific types of PSPO or the proposed location.

A period of consultation on the proposed PSPOs opens on Friday 14th July 2017 and is open for comments until 12 midnight on Friday 7th September 2017.  The Council is inviting comments from The Police and Crime Commissioner, the land owner, representatives from Derbyshire Police, and views from local residents.

Any comments or representations received after 12:00 midnight on 7th September 2017 will not be taken into account.  A decision will be made by the Council after the consultation has closed. 

Please use the drop down menu below to view each individual PSPO and supporting documents. You are then invited to complete the consultation form with your comments.

PSPO Dog Control in Cemeteries


The PSPO in cemeteries would require all dogs to be kept in leads whilst within the cemetery grounds. They are designed to ensure dog owners respect the location and those visiting the cemetery.

The cemeteries where it is proposed to introduce such orders are:

PSPO Gating Orders


Gating orders are designed to restrict access to areas that may be vulnerable to fly-tipping and other anti-social behaviour. The gates are designed to allow continued access to the public to enjoy the location but will restrict vehicular access. The Council proposes to create PSPO Gating Notices at following locations:

PSPO Alcohol Restriction Zones


These PSPO are put in place to prevent the consumption of alcohol within the designated, restricted zone. The Council proposes to create/renew alcohol restriction zone in the following locations:
