Local residents are being asked to have their say on the renewal of borough-wide measures to prohibit antisocial street drinking and ensure that people keep control of dogs in public spaces.
The measures have been in place in Hackney since 2010 and 2013 respectively, and help ensure that residents can enjoy public spaces without experiencing antisocial behaviour.
The proposed dog control public space protection order would ensure that the Council can in specific areas, such as play areas or school playgrounds, and where appropriate, prevent dogs from entering, ensure that they are kept on leads and do not foul land.
The alcohol in public spaces public space protection order would allow police officers or authorised officers to ask people to stop drinking and have drinks confiscated if they are acting antisocially. The measure does not ban drinking in public spaces.
Residents are being urged to have their say on the proposed renewal, which will help to shape and inform the public space protection orders: http://consultation.hackney.gov.uk/
The consultations close on: 31 October.
