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

  • 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.
