Choumert Road and the surrounding area in Peckham will have a 48-hour dispersal zone put in place for the second weekend in a row come Friday.
The measures came was put into force last weekend after reports of rowdy behaviour and drug taking. It is not related to COVID-19 legislation.
Inspector Cornish, from Southwark’s neighbourhood team, said police were working with the council to find a ‘longer-term’ solution to the problem. He said the situation was “making residents lives a misery”.
Alongside Burgess Park, Dawson’s Hill – a nature reserve – has emerged as a hotspot for anti-social behaviour during the lockdown – with large groups playing loud music.
This is a recurring issue now. Local residents would like to see some action please.

And on Dawson’s Hill. Every morning it’s like this. Local residents cleaning it up but it shouldn’t be like it in the first place. Also: the noise from large groups goes on late. pic.twitter.com/nns0ROyTff
