The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has today (Friday 24 July) begun a consultation on introducing a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) to help tackle the problem of ‘supercars’ in and around Knightsbridge.
The consultation is in response to requests from residents in the Brompton and Hans Town ward for the Council to address the issue of high performance cars speeding in the streets, drivers revving engines, and vehicles causing obstructions.
A PSPO is a new measure, created by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, which is intended to deal with activities carried out in a public space that have a detrimental effect to the local community’s quality of life. This PSPO would enable the Council to impose restrictions within a particular area and the aim is to stop individuals or groups committing antisocial behaviour in public spaces.
You can find out more about where the proposed control zone will be located and what it means, as well as giving your feedback by going to www.rbkc.gov.uk/pspo
In addition the Council will hold information drop-in sessions at the following venues:
Hans Crescent, next to Harrods on Wednesday 12 August 2015, 1pm to 3pm
Brompton Library on Tuesday 8 September 2015, 2pm to 4pm
Hans Crescent, next to Harrods on Thursday 17 September 2015, 10am to noon
Cllr Tim Ahern, Cabinet Member for Environment, Environmental Health and Leisure, said: “I know there has been a lot of coverage of expensive cars racing around Knightsbridge and also parking up and revving their engines. We want to take steps to discourage these drivers from their antisocial behaviour.”
