 In October 2014 the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime  and Policing Act 2014 (the Act) introduced new powers relevant to tackling Anti-Social Behaviour. In January 2020 the Executive Board approved the implementation of a 3 year Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) in Wrexham, identified by the area within the orange boundary on the map (from now on referred to as the relevant area).

The legislation states that the maximum time a PSPO can be implemented for is three years, before requiring a review. There are no restrictions on the number of times the PSPO can be reviewed and re-implemented. It will be a criminal offence not to stick to the order, and you can either get a fixed penalty notice of £100 or be prosecuted, which could lead to a fine of up to £1,000.

The Public Space Protection Order to date, has supported the Council and its partners in our approach to address a number of specific concerns related to anti-social behaviour in the relevant area and to encourage vulnerable people to access support and services, seeking to break the cycle of behaviour and vulnerability they can be locked into.

By not addressing concerns effectively it is clear that there is risk to the quality of life of residents, a risk to the reputation of Wrexham, including loss of trade and attractiveness to new businesses, and subsequently a reduction in visitors/tourists to the area.
