Public Spaces Protection Order - Trafford Park

Following a public consultation in 2016, Trafford Council is introducing a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) to combat Car Cruising in Trafford Park.

The analysis of the public consultation shows that a major problem exists. Car cruising cannot be controlled or dealt with by traditional means, and current methods are not sustainable. The implementation of the PSPO may not solve the problem alone, but will allow the police to take appropriate action at an earlier stage which will assist in preventing the gathering of large numbers of vehicles or crowds of people.

Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) – Transition from Designated Public Places Order (DPPO)

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.  In October 2017 these automatically converted to PSPOs for a further three year period.

A DPPO was implemented on 24 May 2002 covering the borough of Trafford to prevent the consumption of alcohol in designated public places – Designated Public Places Order

This order covers the Borough of Trafford with the exception of those areas identified.

Sections 12 to 16 of the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001 explain the powers given by the act.
