Interim anti-social behaviour orders on applications under Article 3

Article 4 provides that interim orders may be made by a magistrates' court in circumstances where the main application has not been determined.  An order under this Article can prohibit a defendant from doing anything described in the order and shall be for a fixed period. Such an order may be varied, renewed or discharged and, if it has not already ceased to have effect, it ceases to have effect on the determination of the main application for an ASBO.  A person can appeal to the county court against the making of an interim order under this Article.
