Shepherds Bush Green public spaces protection order
Public Spaces Protection Order to prohibit public urination and defecation
Following a public consultation in 2018, where 96% of respondents were in favour, the deputy leader of the council has approved the recommendation to extend the Public Spaces Protection Order prohibiting public urination and defecation in Shepherds Bush ward for a further three years.
What are the restrictions?
You are prohibited from urinating or defecating in a public place in the area of Shepherds Bush Green Ward, as defined by the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham.
A police constable, Police Community Support Officer or other authorised person may issue a fixed penalty notice to anyone they believe has committed an offence. You will have 14 days to pay the fixed penalty of £100 (reduced to £60 if paid within 10 days). If you pay the fixed penalty within 14 days you will not be prosecuted.
Why are the powers needed?
These powers are designed to ensure residents and visitors can enjoy our public spaces safely.
We will be consulting with the police to consider whether the order might be varied to cover more areas of the borough and if so will carry out a further consultation with the public on any proposed variation.
