We want to hear your views on Croydon Council introducing a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) in Thornton Heath and its surrounding area.

A council can use its authority to introduce a PSPO, giving the police extra powers to tackle specific antisocial behaviours (ASB) and activities, such as street drinking, urinating in public and noise in a specific area.

The proposed PSPO would cover Thornton Heath town centre and its surrounding area. This is to cover antisocial behaviour hotspots close to the town centre, preventing it moving from the town centre to nearby parks and public spaces. See a map of the proposed area here.

If introduced, the council will work with the police to make sure people are aware of the PSPO and the area it covers, so it is clear which behaviours and activities are not allowed in the area. Anyone who refuses to stop the behaviours or activities in the area could be arrested or fined.

Complete the survey below to tell us about your personal experiences of antisocial behaviour and alcohol related crime in Thornton Heath, as well as your views on how to tackle this.

If you need this consultation information in a different language or format, please contact: PSPO@croydon.gov.uk.

This consultation, which was approved by Croydon’s Executive Mayor, Jason Perry, at cabinet on 24 May, will run until 11.59pm, Monday 17 July 2023. All feedback will be reviewed and recommendations for a Thornton Heath PSPO will be taken back to cabinet during autumn 2023.
