Main article content
Anti-social behaviour in Gravesend is being targeted by Kent Police over a two-day period.
Three specific areas will be subject to a 48-hour dispersal order, from 6pm on Thursday 26 October until 6pm on Saturday 28 October 2023.
A dispersal order covering the Christian Fields estate will include Christian Fields Avenue, Mungo Park Road and adjacent streets.
A second location, surrounding Medhurst Park, includes Medhurst Gardens, Hibernia Drive, St Gregory’s Crescent, Cervia Way and St Margaret’s Crescent.
Enforcement will also take place within the Denton area, including in Dalefield Way and Dering Way.
Anyone found acting in a disorderly or anti-social manner can be directed by a police officer or PCSO to leave the area.
Inspector Kirsty Atkin, of Gravesham Community Safety Unit, said: ‘We have recently received reports of groups causing noise, damage and being disorderly in all of these areas. ‘Officers will be patrolling these roads and open spaces and anyone found causing a nuisance will be required to leave or, in the case of young people, taken home to their parents. Those who choose to return once dispersed can expect to be arrested.’
Residents can report instances of anti-social behaviour online via our online portal.
If a crime is in progress, don’t hesitate to call 999.
