Tackling anti-social behaviour on Monks Hill
11/12/2013 16:22:00


Over the last few weeks, my office, local councillors and the police have all been contacted by Monks Hill residents about persistent anti-social behaviour in the area.

My colleagues at Croydon Council and the Safer Croydon Partnership have therefore decided to impose a dispersal order on the Monks Hill estate.

Dispersal orders are a useful tool that help the police tackle crime and anti-social behaviour. They empower the police to:

- tell people to disperse either immediately or at a stated time and in a stated way;

- tell people who don’t live in the affected area to leave either immediately or at a stated time and in a stated way; and

- tell people who don’t live in the affected area not to return to the affected area or any part of it for such period (not exceeding 24 hours) from when the direction was given as the officer may specify.

To contravene a direction is an offence under Section 32 of the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003, punishable by three months’ imprisonment and/or a fine not exceeding £2,500.

The order will last until Saturday 10th May 2014 and covers Selsdon Park Road, Farnborough Avenue, Lomond Gardens, Broadcoombe, Warren Avenue, the Shepherds Way service road, Tedder Road and Edgecoombe.
