Measures launched following complaints about groups of men displaying yobbish behaviour in the Chichele Road area
Three councils have teamed up to roll out a dispersal zone in Cricklewood targeting groups of men who carry out anti-social behaviour in the morning.
The six-month long action by Brent, Barnet and Camden Council was launched on Monday following reports from residents and traders about individuals drinking alcohol, urinating and flytipping around the Chichele Road area between 6am and 9am.
The area is a well-known meeting spot for labourers seeking casual work.
Under the measures groups or individuals displaying yobbish behaviour can be dispersed by PCs and PCSOs from Brent Police.

They will be barred from returning to the area within 24 hours and anyone who refuses to move on or breaches the order can face up to three months imprisonment or a fine of up to £2,500.
Brent Acting Superintendent Nicholas Davies said: “This dispersal order is unique in that it covers three boroughs.
