APCOA supporting Harrow to tackle street issues

The London councils of Ealing, Harrow and Hounslow have come together to sign a joint contract with APCOA to tackle problems such as littering and other enviro-crime offences.

The new arrangement with APCOA came into force on 1 July 2024 and means APCOA Neighbourhood Enforcement Officers will be patrolling on streets, in town centres, and in parks and open spaces. They will be able to promptly report and arrange clearance of incidents of fly-tipping, prevent cases of littering and dog fouling, and issue on-the-spot fixed penalty notices (FPN) to offenders where necessary. The patrols will support the councils to be better able to proactively respond to known environmental problems.

In Harrow APCOA will also be issuing fines where there is a breach of the new borough-wide Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) 

Kim Challis, Regional Managing Director (UK&I) at APCOA said: “We are really pleased to be working now with Ealing, Harrow and Hounslow councils, using our extensive experience in environmental enforcement to help tackle anti-social problems. We welcome the opportunity to make a difference to the local communities across these three London boroughs.”
