Dispersal Zone around Gillet Square

August 2, 2013

In a move welcomed by local residents, the Metropolitan Police have issued an authorisation for the creation of a ‘dispersal zone’ around Gillet Square, as from August 1st, 2013.

The zone extends from 117 Kingsland High Street (the Dalston Superstore) at its northern tip down to Bradbury Street in the south. It is bounded on the east by Kingsland High Street, on the west by Boleyn Road and on the north by the part of Crossway between the junction with Boleyn Road and John Campbell Road and then by John Campbell Road. It includes Gillet Street and Gillet Place.

Under the Anti Social Behaviour Act (2003) the police have powers to ask people to disperse and to ban non-residents from returning to the zone for up to 24 hours.
