Ropemakers Public spaces protection order 2017

This consultation has ended

The council and local police are considering the introduction of a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) in Ropemakers Fields Park and Dundee Wharf to tackle anti-social behaviour following years of complaints by residents.

Public Spaces Protection Orders give the council and the police more powers to deal with nuisance, harassment and other anti-social activities that negatively impact on local communities.

The PSPO signage in the area would also warn people who are thinking of behaving badly that enforcement action will be taken for anti-social behaviour. Download a copy of the draft PSPO.

Local residents, visitors to the area and the council’s partners are being asked whether a PSPO should be introduced around the Ropemakers Fields area, under the Anti- Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

Reports of anti-social behaviour to the council and police helped to identify this as a ‘hotspot area’. View a map of the area.

The order would apply to Ropemakers Fields Park and extend south to the Thames Pathway. It would aim to prevent anti-social activities such as noise nuisance, use of vehicles in the park and on the Thames Pathway, anti-social behaviour associated with drug and alcohol use, public urination and littering.
