New dispersal order comes into force in Bruce Grove
A new dispersal order is being introduced in Tottenham to help tackle anti-social behaviour.
Following complaints from people in the Bruce Grove area a new dispersal order has been introduced around Moorefield Road.
Concerns have been raised about large groups of young people hanging around the streets, allegedly dealing and taking drugs.
It has also reported members of the groups urinate on people’s doorsteps and leave litter along many road.
The new order gives Safer Neighbourhoods Teams the power to remove people from the area if believe they will cause anti-social behaviour.
If they return within 24 hours they could be arrested and face a possible prison sentence of three months.
Police and PCSOS also have the power to break up groups of two or more people if they believe people will be intimidated, distressed or harassed by the group’s presence.
The new order, which has had the agreement of Haringey Council, will run until February 28 next year and will include the following roads:
Bruce Grove ,Woodside Gardens, Forest Gardens, Forest Gardens Mews, Hartham Road, The Avenue, Moorefield Road, Sperling Road, St Loys’ Road, Clacton Road, Elmhurst Road, Radley Road, Linley Road, Whitley Road, Hamilton Place, Howsfield Place, Champa Close and Selkirk Court.
