– Swan Lane
– Orchard Street
– Castlefields

The order comes under Section 34 of the Anti-Social Behaviour & Policing Act 2014, which gives police officers and Police community support officers powers to direct people they suspect are causing or likely to cause crime, nuisance or anti-social behaviour to members of the public to leave a designated area and not return for up to 48 hours.

Under legislation, officers have the power to seize any item in the commission of anti-social behaviour.

Should a person who has previously been directed to leave the area return, an offence would have been committed, which they may ultimately be arrested for.
