Public Spaces Protection Order
We've set up a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) for Spalding, in order to improve the quality of life for those living, working and visiting the area. The PSPO covers:
- from St Thomas's Road north to West Elloe Avenue, and
- from the railway station east to Commercial Road.
Signs have been erected within the designated area to promote this initiative..
The following activities are offences within the PSPO:
- failure to comply with an officer's request to stop drinking alcohol in a public space
- spitting saliva or any other product of the mouth on to the ground
- dropping litter
- urinating or defecating.
The law does not allow for a complete ban on drinking alcohol in a public place. The offence is failing to comply with an officer's request to stop drinking within a PSPO area.
