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. Icon for pdf View a copy of the PSPO signs [1.08MB].

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.

If you'd like more information about the PSPO, please contact the Community Safety and Enforcement Team on 01775 761161 or email communitysafety@sholland.gov.uk.
