11394Barnsley is steeped in history and has a lot to offer – award winning parks, free museums, famous markets offering excellent local produce and a great selection of places to drink and eat.

That said, our town faces a number of challenges with anti-social behaviour and issues have been raised by the community and businesses. We want to make sure Barnsley remains a great place to live, work and visit.

To help achieve this, Barnsley town centre and surrounding residential areas are subject to a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO).

The PSPO allows measures to be put in place to deter anti-social behaviour whilst making sure that the appropriate support is available to protect some of the most vulnerable people in our society.


What is a Public Space Protection Order?

Public Space Protection Orders are used to regulate activities in particular public places that can have a detrimental effect on the local community. They can help by giving local councils and local police additional powers to tackle antisocial behaviour in specific locations.

A 12 Week  Review of the Impact of the Public Spaces Protection Order and Interventions to Manage Anti-Social Behaviour has now been produced and you can read  it here
