Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We want to hear your views on the council introducing a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) in Croydon town centre.

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 the town centre and its surrounding area, including parts of South Croydon and Broad Green. 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 central Croydon, 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 earlier this month, will run until Thursday 15 September. All feedback will be reviewed and recommendations for a town centre PSPO will be taken back to cabinet during autumn 2022.
