Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014

Brighton & Hove City Council in exercise of its powers under sections Section 59, 64 and 72 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 ("the act") hereby makes the following Order:- 

  1. This Order shall come into operation on 19 October 2023 and shall have effect until 19 October 2026 unless extended before that date under the Council's statutory powers.
  2. This Order relates to the public highway known as Farman Street as shown on the attached plan ("the Plan").
  3. This Order authorises that entry into Farman Street from its junction with Western Road is restricted between the hours of 2100 and 0800 every day ("the Restricted Hours") by one lockable gate at Farman Street's junction with Western Road ("the Gate"), as marked in red on the Plan. Exit from Farman Street into Western Road will not be restricted. Owners and occupiers of properties in Farman Street and owners and occupiers of properties in Western Road adjoining Farman Street, and visitors to those properties, will not be affected by this Order.
  4. The alternative route for pedestrians will be along Little Western Street or Waterloo Street. 
  5. Responsibility for the maintenance of the Gate will lie with the residents within the affected area requiring access.
  6. The Council is satisfied that the conditions set out in Sections 59, 64 and 72 of the Act have been satisfied and that it is in all the circumstances expedient to make this Order for the purposes of reducing crime and antisocial behaviour in and around Farman Street. The Council makes the Order because criminal and antisocial behaviour in and around Farman Street has had a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality. The effect or likely effect of this is of a persistent or continuing nature such as to make this unreasonable, and justifies the restrictions imposed by this Order. 
  7. Save for those persons exempted from the provisions of this Order under Article 3. above, no person shall access Farman Street from its junction with Western Road during the Restricted Hours. 
  8. If any interested person desires to question the validity of this Order on the grounds that the Council had no power to make it or that any requirement of the Act has not been complied with in relation to this Order, he or she may apply to the High Court within six weeks from the date on which this Order is made.
