Penalties for breaching PSPO

A police constable, or an authorised person, may issue a fixed penalty notice under s68 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 (‘the Act’) not exceeding £100 to anyone s/he has reason to believe has committed an offence in relation to the PSPO.

Failure without reasonable excuse, to comply with the prohibitions imposed by the PSPO, is a summary offence under s67 of the Act and liable, on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale (£1,000).

Legal challenge

PSPOs can be challenged under the Act by an individual who lives in or regularly works in or visits the restricted area on the grounds that the local authority did not have the power either to make the Order or include particular prohibitions or that the Act was not complied with in relation to the Order.

Challenges to the introduction of this new PSPO must be made to the High Court within six weeks of the date of the Order being made (in this case by 19 November 2021 if the Order is made on 8 October 2021).

A copy of the made Order will be available following 8 October 2021.
