Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A CRIME hotspot has been made into a ‘dis­per­sal zone’ in an ef­fort to re­duce anti-so­cial be­hav­iour.

The move en­ables po­lice to or­der groups of teenagers to stay away from the area in West Dray­ton for 24 hours.

The zone in Dray­ton Gar­den Vil­lage cov­ers Mul­berry Pa­rade (in­clud­ing the car park and seat­ing area out­side shops), Porters Way (from Mul­berry Pa­rade to North Road), Spring Prom­e­nade (from Porters Way to Ever­green Drive) and the sports ground off Mul­berry Pa­rade. The or­der be­came ef­fec­tive on Sun­day and will run un­til April 2015, be­tween 5pm and 1am daily.

It fol­lows a ‘ sig­nif­i­cant in­crease’ in the num­ber of teenage youths fre­quent­ing the area, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.
