Ensuring residents feel safe across the borough is a priority for Hounslow Council.
 
Anti-social behaviour [ASB] including alcohol-related incidents makes life a misery for many residents and the Council is cracking down on such behaviour by looking to introduce measures such as PSPOs [Public Space Protection Orders].
 
These 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.
 
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: 

  • Does the locality suffer from disorder, nuisance and/or annoyance associated with street drinking and alcohol consumption in open/public spaces?
  • Would you be in support of the continuation of these discretionary powers [PSPO] that will replace the existing Controlled Drinking Zone?
  • 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?

 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.”
