Public Spaces Protection Orders impose controls on public spaces. The transitioned orders which existed before the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 expire in October 2020 after which date there will be no controls on anti-social behaviour in public spaces unless the local authority has made a PSPO.

In this third and last video, Kuljit explains the test that must be satisfied in order for a PSPO to be made and the related case law.
