Order to tackle anti-social behaviour in Hillside and Page Moss

Following consultation with residents and businesses, a Public Spaces Protection Order in the Hillside and Page Moss area of Huyton will be introduced on Thursday, 19 April 2018 for a period of two years.

The Order prohibits a range of activities taking place within the restricted area in Hillside and Page Moss – view the full order and the area covered here.

The activities that are prohibited include:

  • Anti-social behaviour caused by groups of people or individuals in public spaces
  • Verbal abuse
  • Threats of or use of violence
  • The anti-social use of motor bikes, quad bikes, scramblers and mini-motors
  • Possession of goods, items or materials use for unauthorised graffiti
  • Consumption of alcohol in the public place
  • Damage to property including fire and graffiti

The Order will be enforced by officers from Merseyside Police and Knowsley Council (known as an ‘authorised person’).  Failure to comply with a request from an authorised person will be recorded as an offence and Fixed Penalty Notice may be issued, which is a fine of £100 if paid on time, however this could result in a fine up to the value of £1,000 upon conviction.

Local Policing Inspector Phil Mullally said: “We know that a small minority of people have been involved in crime and anti-social behaviour, impacting on the communities of Hillside and Page Moss in Huyton. Knowsley Local Policing Team works in conjunction with partner agencies on a daily basis to tackle those involved in crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour, utilising all available legal powers.

“We will continue to introduce Public Space Protection Orders where and when appropriate and support individuals who have been affected by crime and anti-social behaviour.

“Officers regularly patrol the area and will continue to do so following the introduction of the PSPO. We will always act on the concerns of our communities, so keep providing information to allow us to take positive action.”

Please follow your local Policing team on social media for regular updates on matters in your community by following us on Twitter @MerPolHuyton or on Facebook ‘KnowsleyPolice’ where you can send us private messages about issues affecting you.

If you have any information regarding anti-social behaviour in your area, please contact Merseyside Police on 101 (999 in an emergency) or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
