More powers to tackle anti-social behaviour in and around Wanstead


Powers to tackle anti-social behaviour in the west of the borough have been extended after residents overwhelmingly supported Redbridge Council’s proposals to update a Public Space Protection Order for the area.

The new order includes additional restrictions, including begging, public urination, loitering and spitting.

“Public concern prompted a consultation with residents, which received 1,693 responses with an overwhelming majority in favour of all the restrictions,” said a council spokesperson.
