Following recent reports of anti-social behaviour in the Ystrad Mynach area, there will be a 48 hour Dispersal Order (Under Section 35 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014) in place this weekend.

The designated area of the order will include: A472, Caerphilly Road, Cedar Way, Pine Grove, Trinity Close, Pen-y-Cae, Heol Brynteg, Trinity Fields School, Ystrad Mynach Park, Ystrad Mynach bowls club, Ystrad Mynach Tennis courts, Commercial street, Central Street, Church Street, Lisburn Road, Bedwlwyn Road, Siloh Square, Oakfield Street, High Street, Pengam Road, Penalta Road, Beech Embankment, The Walk, Dilwyn Avenue, The Avenue, Pantycelyn Street, Ystrad Mynach Railway Station, Hengoed Cycle path, and all public spaced and thoroughfares contained within the boundary designated on the attached map.

The order starts at 5pm on Friday 2nd February and will be in place for 48 hours.

Officers will be patrolling the area and will have the authority to direct anyone behaving anti-socially away from the area. If they return to that area after being moved on, they face being arrested.

PS Tom Delaney said, ‘People in the Ystrad Mynach area have expressed concerns about unacceptable behaviour by a minority of individuals. We understand the effect that this type of behaviour has on residents and these orders help highlight those who are committing these acts. This in turn helps make the area a safer and happier place for both residents and visitors. 

“We will continue to deal with repeat offenders robustly and would ask anyone experiencing anti-social behaviour in their area to call 101 to report it or dial 999 if there is an emergency. You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
