Public Spaces Protection Orders

Public spaces protection orders (PSPOs) are intended to deal with a particular nuisance or problem, in a specific area, that is detrimental to the local community's quality of life. It does so by imposing conditions on the use of that area which apply to everyone. PSPOs impose conditions or restrictions on people using that area to deal with particular issues such as the consumption of alcohol in a defined area.

They are designed to ensure the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour. Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) can make a PSPO if it believes the activities are detrimental to the local community's life.

There are four areas within Mole Valley which are covered by PSPOs. The related pages give more information about the restrictions covered as well as maps of the areas:

  • Kingston Road Recreation Ground, Leatherhead
  • Meadowbank Recreation Ground, Dorking
  • Dorking Town Centre
  • Leatherhead Town Centre
