The Council has launched a consultation as it looks to renew a Public Space Protection Order on Dagenham Heathway.
Drinking alcohol in a public place, spitting, public urination and begging are prohibited under the current Heathway PSPO.
It also prohibits groups engaging in behaviour which causes residents and other users of the area nuisance, annoyance, harassment, alarm, or distress.
Between the order’s introduction in 2018 and December 2020, there has been 389 PSPO breaches and 19 alcohol seizures.
The Council are currently consulting to see if it should be extended for a further three years.
Cabinet Member for Enforcement and Community Safety, Councillor Margaret Mullane said: “PSPOs play a huge part in our battle against antisocial behaviour and allow our officers to put a stop to unsightly issues such spitting, drinking alcohol or harassing others.
“I hope residents understand the importance of PSPOs and take the time to complete the consultation.”
The consultation is now live on the Council’s consultation portal and will be open until Monday 19 July.
