A dispersal order was put in place by the Met Police following issues of anti-social behaviour outside KFC in Northwood Hills.
The store on Joel Street had become a meeting point for youths and had been making life a “misery” to locals in the area including drug use and violence.
The order enforced by the Met Police covers from Joel Street by Norwich Road to Pinner Road and nearby residential streets.
A dispersal order had been put in place to help the police when dealing with ongoing issues of anti-social behaviour outside KFC and around Joel Street. Sergeant Jim Last told residents he will use the order again if it continues.
Part of this has been managing KFC to a point where a security guard has now been employed at the store and threats of closure and a CPN.
Councillor Duncan Flynn, for Northwood Hills, said: “Thank you to Northwood Hills police and Hillingdon Borough Council for supporting the dispersal order to tackle anti-social behaviour on Joel Street.
“A small number of lawless youths have been making life a misery for the law-abiding majority in Northwood Hills and it’s got to stop.”
Nearby resident Ben Rawson-Jones commented: “This sounds good but aren’t the troublemakers likely to move to the nearby Northwood Recreation Ground?
“That area already suffers from a lot of anti-social behaviour which may now increase. Could more patrols there help?”
