Gating orders (Public Spaces Protection Orders) | Oxfordshire County Council

Gating orders (Public Spaces Protection Orders)

When we decide to restrict access to a route because of anti-social behaviour.

With the introduction of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, Gating Orders have been replaced by Public Spaces Protection Orders. The information below is for historic purposes only while new information is being collated

Gating Orders

We have the power to gate certain types of route where we are satisfied that levels of anti-social behaviour, crime or disorder justify such action.

A Gating Order may be made to restrict the route at all times or for certain times or periods as may be appropriate to the circumstances. The power does not permanently extinguish rights of way, making it possible to subsequently alter or revoke the restrictions and reinstate public usage.

Gating order register

We are required to keep a register of current Gating Orders. A list of applications for Gating Orders, applications for changes to existing Gating Orders, and a full list of all current Gating Orders can be inspected at our offices at County Hall, New Road, Oxford, OX1 1ND Tel 01865 815700 (during normal office hours).
