Hounslow Council has committed to introduce a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) covering the whole borough to stop individuals or groups committing alcohol related anti-social behaviour.

Anyone found in a position of the inappropriate use of alcohol in a public place, could receive a fixed penalty notice of £100 and if not paid could be fined up to £1,000 on prosecution.

Restrictions are also being introduced on the use of unauthorised motor vehicles in Feltham Park, to tackle the anti-social use of mopeds and other powered vehicles in and around the park.

Councillor Hanif Khan, Cabinet Member for Community Protection and Enforcement, Hounslow Council said; “This new order will enable the council to take action to reduce alcohol related anti-social behaviour and help ensure the borough is clean and safe.

“When we consulted on the proposal,  a massive 93 per cent of people were in favour. We are delighted to now be putting the PSPO in place.”
