TWO dispersal orders lasting six months will be put into place in the Newport East area this month to tackle problems including noise nuisance and open drug dealing.
The orders will be placed in the Lliswerry ward and the St Julians ward and will both run from 9am on October 31 until midnight on April 30 next year.
The orders, placed under the anti social behaviour act 2003 means groups of two or more people within those areas can be asked to leave. If they return within 24 hours they can be arrested.
Crime and disorder reduction officer for Newport East, Leanne Pole said: “A dispersal is needed in the area to offer residents living and affected by the behaviour displayed by the groups some respite.”
She said residents in the area are suffering from noise nuisance and, in the case of the St Julians ward, open drug dealing on a daily basis which is having a detrimental effect on their lives.
She said: “While the orders are in place it will give all the partners, including the police and the council, time to engage with these communities and identify the perpetrators so that they can be dealt with swiftly and efficiently.”
The order in the Lliswerry ward will cover both Moorland Park and Broadmead Park as well as all the streets within the Pontfaen esate within the following streets.
These are Fallowfield Drive, Pontfaen Road, Hillview Crescent, Mulcaster Avenue, Eastmoor Road, Westmoor Road, Fosse Close and Fosse Road.
Also included in the order are the junction of Lliswerry Road and Lliswerry Park Drive on the Alway side. This is so that both ends of the cattle bridge are covered.
The order in St Julians Ward covers the following streets as a border and all streets within that border.
These are the junction of Constance Street and Caerleon Road, the junction of Caerleon Road and Bank Street, the junction of Bank Street and the Riverbank and the junction of Constance Street and the Riverbank.
All roads within this area as well as lanes are also covered. These are Bank Lane, Morden Lane, Orchard Lane, Pool Lane and Durham Lane.
