Borough-wide Replacement for Controlled Drinking Zone Proposed
Anti-social behaviour [ASB] including alcohol-related incidents makes life a misery for many residents and Hounslow Council is cracking down on such behaviour by looking to introduce measures such as PSPOs [Public Space Protection Orders].
The PSPO orders are to replace the existing Controlled Drinking Zone [CDZ] which allows police to enforce against people found drinking alcohol and causing anti-social behaviour.
That CDZ, will expire on 31 July and subject to the consultation, will be replaced by a PSPO. Both are borough-wide.
Hounslow Community Safety Partnership [HCSP] is holding a consultation on a PSPO which will run until Friday 14 July. It will be asking residents to have their say on the following:
Do you support the introduction of a borough wide Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) as a tool to address alcohol related anti-social behaviour (ASB)?
- Do you support the confiscation of alcohol to address alcohol related ASB?
- Do you support the issuing of fines to address alcohol related ASB?
- There is an opportunity for the PSPO to include an unauthorised motorised vehicle (any motor vehicle that is not a mobility scooter or authorised parks staff vehicle) ban in the Feltham Park area: would you support this?
Residents can voice their views online
Councillor Hanif Khan, Cabinet Member for Community Protection, Hounslow Council, said: “We need the views of our residents on what they think of the enforcement we can look to put in place.
“Their feedback will give us a true picture of what anti-social behaviour is going on and how it is affecting our communities.
“I urge our residents to have their say in this consultation and we can work together on sending out the message that anti-social behaviour is not welcome in our borough.”
