I notice a Northamptonshire Local authority is the first to ban skateboarding in a particular area of the town under the new Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO)
Would Article 11 of the HRA (Freedom of assembly and association) be a realistic challenge?

Are they proposing to stop people assembling and associating, or just skateboarding?
(You may guess that I am struggling to see how the idea of an objection on human rights grounds might work.)

If it is the first then presumably it has not been tested in law.
However, such rights are not absolute. A real issue would be whether the order was proportionate.
I might not want to make such an order, but I suspect it could be relatively easily justified.
