Designated Public Place Orders (DPPOs) in East Dorset
The Anti-Social Behaviour, Police and Crime Act 2014, introduced Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs). The legislation stated that any existing Designated Public Place Orders (DPPO), Gating Orders or Dog Control Orders currently in force, would continue to be valid for a period of three years following commencement of the new Legislation (20th October 2014), at which point they would then be treated as PSPOs
As of 20 October 2017 all existing DPPOs in East Dorset are to be treated as PSPOs and will be enforced as such. There are no Gating Orders in the area.
There have been no changes to any of the current orders.
There was a DPPO in Wimborne Town Centre which is now treated as a PSPOs.
