The activities which are to be prohibited are the use of a motor vehicle, or creation of noise from a motor vehicle, or behaviour by a person in a way likely to cause nuisance or annoyance to a member of the public, or a risk of harm, damage or injury to a person or property.

Therefore the following Restrictions apply in the Restricted Area: 

3.1 No person being a driver of, or in control of a motor vehicle in any part of the Restricted Area, shall:

  • Rev (i.e. accelerate, whilst the vehicle's clutch is disengaged) an engine of a motor vehicle;
     
  • Suddenly or rapidly accelerate a motor vehicle;
     
  • Race with any other motor vehicle;
     
  • Leave the engine of a motor vehicle running on idle other than when queueing to park or depart;
     
  • Perform any motor vehicle stunts;
     
  • Sound a horn repetitively; or
     
  • Play music audible outside of the motor vehicle

3.2 No person in any part of the Restricted Area shall:

  • Use behaviour towards another person reasonably perceived to be threatening, aggressive or intimidating;
     
  • Use foul or abusive language;
     
  • Gather or loiter with any other person(s) in a manner which is (or may reasonably be perceived as) intimidating or threatening to any other member of the public;
     
  • Use any part of the Restricted Area for skating (whether using in-line or roller skates), skateboarding or playing ball games;
     
  • Use any part of the Restricted Area for cycling in a manner which is (or may reasonably be perceived as) intimidating or threatening to any other member of the public;

A PSPO is not a ban on the legitimate use of a carpark nor prevents activities which are not causing anti-social behaviour.  However it will be an offence not to comply with the Order, the penalty for which will be a fixed penalty notice or a fine on summary conviction not exceeding Level 3 on the standard scale (currently £1000).

The Order will take effect from 2nd May 2018 and will last for 3 years at which time it will be reviewed.
