Consultation to replace the Expedited Public Spaces Protection Order (E-PSPO) with a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO)

Closed 24 Apr 2023

Opened 27 Mar 2023


Between November 2022 and January 2023 we consulted with the Stockport Public to gather their views on the introduction of the the Expedited Public Spaces Protection Order (E-PSPO). 

The order was introduced on 25th November 2022 for the safety of staff and visitors to vaccination centres. The order is currently in place for 6 months, and this consultation allowed members of the public to share their views and experiences of the order and its requirements, to inform the review of this E-PSPO.

This latest consultation is to gather feedback on our proposal to replace the E-PSPO with a 3 year PSPO with the same wording and effect.

What happens next

Following the consultation ending on 24 April 2023, the following timeline has been suggested

  • 2 May 2023: Report to Corporate Leadership Team (CLT)
