A map of the proposed area for the PSPO. This covers Eagle Brewery Wharf Open Space, an area surrounded by residential and business premises between Riverside Walk and High Street, Kingston upon Thames, KT1.

The Police and the Council have received reports about activities in a public space known as Eagle Brewery Wharf, Kingston upon Thames and the immediate vicinity which have had a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality.

These activities being persons causing anti-social behaviour, the use of loudspeakers etc. to amplify sound, public consumption of alcohol, consuming psychoactive substances, obstruction of, and parking in, of the area to the rear of 38-46 High Street, Kingston upon Thames etc. and urination or defecation.

To address the detrimental effect this anti-social behaviour is having on the quality of life of those in the locality the Council is proposing to make a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) to restrict the use of Eagle Brewery Wharf and the immediate vicinity. Initial consultation regarding a proposed PSPO for Eagle Brewery Wharf was undertaken in April/May 2020 and resulted in the following responses:

  • All respondents said that anti-social behaviour in Eagle Brewery Wharf and the immediate vicinity was detrimental to, or affecting their quality of life or enjoyment of the area.
  • All respondents strongly agreed with the proposal to introduce a PSPO.
  • All respondents strongly agreed that a PSPO was an appropriate tool to reduce anti-social behaviour.
  • All respondents thought that a PSPO would have a very positive impact or a fairly positive impact on their community.
  • In the free text section a high number of respondents asked for the restricted area to be extended to avoid displacement in the immediate area.

The Council has reflected on the output from the initial consultation and, as a consequence has revised the area the proposed restrictions would apply to (“the Restricted Area”) and the and the conditions the Council intends to impose to address the anti-social behaviour.

Consultation Process

The Council is consulting on the proposal to make a PSPO to address antisocial behaviour in Eagle Brewery Wharf and it's immediate vicinity. Your views are invited on whether a PSPO should be made, the conditions to be included in the proposed Order and the area it should cover. A summary of the proposed restrictions and a map of the restricted area have been published as part of the consultation. These can be found under the documents library on this page.

The Council will consider carefully all responses to the consultation before making any final decision. The decision whether to make a PSPO and, if so, the final form of any Order is subject to this consultation.
