Launch of a Public Space Protection Order for vehicle ASB

A new, joint Public Space Protection Order was launched yesterday (Thursday 4th April 2024) by Broadland and South Norfolk District Councils, which will allow for greater enforcement of vehicle anti-social behaviour by both the police and council.

Vehicle ASB can cause disruption, intimidation, criminal damage and danger to other road users, residents and businesses alike. This PSPO will now allow the council and police to both enforce behaviour in accordance with conditions of the order, and taking part in vehicle ASB can lead to a fixed penalty or prosecution with a maximum fine of £1000.

Inspector Racheal Shearing of Norfolk Constabulary’s Operational Partnership Team, said: “We understand that the vast majority of vehicle enthusiasts do not want to disturb local communities or make them feel unsafe. This PSPO will help us and Council Partners to robustly tackle those who do choose to spoil these events with intimidating and anti-social behaviour.”
