Current Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs)

Expedited Public Spaces Protection Order

An expedited Public Spaces Protection Order was made on 21 September 2023 which prohibits specified activity at sites across Trafford offering vaccinations or test and trace services.

Public Spaces Protection Order – unauthorised motoring events in Trafford

Following a public consultation Trafford Council introduced a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) to deal with problems caused by Car Cruising and anti-social driving events in the Trafford Park area. The area has been covered by a PSPO since 2016 and has helped to tackle the issue by deterring events which can be a major public nuisance, as well as posing significant risks to the safety of the public.

This has been successful in reducing the problems caused by Car Cruising events. A decision has been made to extend the PSPO for a further three years and extend the Restricted Area to cover the whole of the Borough of Trafford.

This PSPO has now been extended to 2 August 2026.

Public Spaces Protection Order - Alcohol consumption in designated places

A DPPO was implemented on 24 May 2002 covering the borough of Trafford to prevent the consumption of alcohol in designated public places. 

Following the introduction of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act in 2014, existing DPPOs were allowed to continue for a further three years. The PSPO was sealed on 19/12/2023 and will be extended for a further three years until 19/12/2026.

Gating orders

In the past we have made a gating order (now called a PSPO) where recorded crime and anti-social behaviour could be significantly reduced by stopping the access along a footpath, ginnel, alley or similar. All of our gating orders are now PSPOs

You can see a list of current gating order PSPOs below. 

These PSPOs are due to expire on 19 October 2020, and we are currently in consultation to extend this date. We will update this page once a decision has been made.

We are not planning to implement any further gating order PSPOs.
