Public Spaces Protection Order Extension - Isebrook and Victoria Ward Alley Gates

Closed 13 Aug 2023

Opened 17 Jul 2023

Feedback updated 14 Feb 2024

We asked

We were considering the extension of the current PSPO for a further three years following its expiration in November 2023. The PSPO covers alleygates in the Isebrook and Victoria Ward and feedback was sought from residents and stakeholders. The current PSPO had been successful in tackling issues of anti-social behaviour, drug taking and criminal activities.

You said

Respondents told us how important the PSPO was to the local area. Respondents were asked whether they agreed the gates on the alleyways had helped reduce anti-social behaviour and crime, and whether the PSPO should be extended for a further three years. Nineteen responses were received of which 18 said they agreed with both questions.  

We did

The PSPO has been extended for a further three years from 2023 to 2026 with no changes to the prohibitions or the restricted area it covers.


North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) is currently reviewing the Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) which currently applies to four alley gates in the Wellingborough Ward of Isebrook and Victoria and would like your views.

The current PSPO was granted in November 2020 for a period of three years, and an extension is now proposed for a further period of three years, from November 2023 to November 2026. There are no proposed changes to the Order or the geographical area, shown in these maps.

What is the PSPO?

Public Spaces Protection Orders were created by the 2014 Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act to deal with any nuisances or problems in a particular area that affects the local community’s quality of life.

In November 2020 a PSPO covering the Wellingborough Ward of Isebrook and Victoria was granted.
