One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Dispersal Order For Central Northampton
Anyone behaving badly in Northampton will now be moved on as 25 streets in town are now covered by a new dispersal order.
The 6-month council order runs until the 22nd of March 2015, and was sought to combat reports of anti-social behaviour in the area.
Police have the power to move potential troublemakers out of the designated area under Section 30 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003.
The roads covered by the order are as follows:
- Melbourne Walk
- Bouverie Walk
- Elizabeth Walk & Elizabeth Street
- Stockley Street
- Vernon Walk
- St Edmonds Street & St Edmonds Road
- Palmerston Road
- Cyril Street
- Wellingborough Road
- Portland Place
- Exeter Place
- Market Street & Market Walk
- Grove Road
- Queens Road
- Spencer Road
- Clare Street
- Carey Street
- Cowper Street
- Hood Street
- Colwyn Road
- Kettering Road
- Shakespeare Road
In recent months there has been an increase in anti-social behaviour, street drinking and youths congregating in this area. Police have been working hard to tackle these issues and improve the town.
