South Tyneside Council Public Spaces Protection Order - Number 4 of 2021

The Order relates to the Restricted Area outlined in red on the attached plan

The Council is satisfied that the conditions set out in Section 59,64 and 72 of the Act have been satisfied and that it is in all the circumstances expedient to make this Order to reduce the detrimental effect or to reduce the risk of crime and anti-social behaviour and its continuance, occurrence or reoccurrence in the Restricted Area, which has had a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality. The effect or likely effect of this is persistence or continuing nature such as to make this unreasonable, and justified the restrictions imposed by this Order.

A person who fails without reasonable excuse to comply with a requirement imposed on him or her commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale.

A constable or authorised person may issue a fixed penalty notice to anyone he or she has reason to believe has committed an offence under s63 or 67 of the Anti-social behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014.

If any interested person desires to question the validity of this Order on the grounds that the Council had no power to make it or that any requirement of the Act has not been complied with in relation to this Order, he or she may apply to the High Court within six weeks from the date on which this Order is made.
