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 6 April 2023 and shall have effect until 19 October 2023 unless extended before that date under the Council's statutory powers.

  2. This Order relates to the footpath linking Oxford Street with the rear of the St Peters Medical Practice (formerly Oxford Court Carpark) ("the Footpath") as shown on the attached plan ("the Plan").

  3. The effect of this Order is to restrict the public right of way over the Footpath at all times except for owners or occupiers of property adjoining the Footpath needing pedestrian access to their property and those requiring passage for pedestrian access to the properties as marked 1 - 9 on the Plan. This Order authorises the installation of lockable gates ("the Gates") at the junction of the Footpath with Oxford Street, as shown on the Plan.

  4. As the Oxlord Court carpark no longer exists, there is no requirement for an alternative route to be identified.

  5. Responsibility for the maintenance of the Gates will lie with the residents within the affected area requiring access and the owners of St Peters Medical Centre.

  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 the Footpath. The Council makes the Order because criminal and antisocial behaviour in and around the Footpath 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 pursuant to Article 3. above, no person shall use the right of way over the Footpath at any time.

  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.
