Anti social behaviour in Marylebone

Since the passing of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policy Act last November, which among other things replaces ASBOs, it looks as if Westminster Council and the Police will have a few more teeth to deal with the rough sleeping problem which is afflicting parts of Marylebone. Working together Westminster Council and the Police are now able to issue a warning to people who are begging, behaving in an anti social way, loitering, making noise or creating mess on our streets in both English and Romanian.

Marylebone Association: Baker Street Two Way Consultation Response
