Public Behaviour


At the last Council meeting Cllr Emma Jones raised the issue of spitting in public. The Council is not doing enough to tackle this
issue, with other London Boroughs including Enfield taking more decisive action. The following motion was submitted by Tower Hamlet’s Tory councillors in November 2013:

Motion – Spitting and urination in public

Proposed by Cllr Gloria Thienel

Seconded by Cllr Peter Golds

This meeting of Tower Hamlets Council expresses concern at the increase of spitting and public urination which is turning many of the borough’s streets and open spaces into serious health hazards.

The council condemns those whose anti social habits damage the health and environment of our public spaces.

This council resolves that those responsible for enforcement should undertake that existing laws and by laws are observed through penalty charges and where necessary, the prosecution of offenders.
