PSPOs still a threat

April 20th 2017

Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) are being used to fine people for begging or sleeping rough.

Despite public outcry when Hackney Council tried, and failed, to target rough-sleeping with a new PSPO in 2015, the controversial orders are being used elsewhere in England.

The Metro reported that over a dozen PSPOs have been used to target begging, whilst at least another four have been served to rough sleepers.? Rick Henderson of Homeless Link criticised the use of PSPOs: "People that are sleeping on our streets need to be supported, not banned or fined." he said.
