It comes after complaints from residents in the royal borough ranging from claims of antisocial behavior and excessive noise.
The council says the consultation on introducing a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) is to help “tackle the problem of supercars in and around Knightsbridge” and follows complaints from people living in the Brompton and Hans Town ward.
Issues raised include excessive revving of car engines, dangerous driving, and vehicles causing obstructions.
The PSPO is intended to deal with activities carried out in a public space that have a detrimental effect to the community’s quality of life and include the entire Brompton and Hans Town ward.
It will enable the council to impose restrictions within a particular area, with the aim of stopping individuals or groups committing antisocial behaviour in public spaces.
Cllr Tim Ahern, environment, environmental health and leisure boss at the royal borough, said: “I know there has been a lot of coverage of expensive cars racing around Knightsbridge and also parking up and revving their engines. We want to take steps to discourage these drivers from their antisocial behaviour.”
Information drop-in sessions on the PSPO will be held at:
- Hans Crescent, next to Harrods: August 12, 1pm-3pm
- Brompton Library: September 8, 2pm-4pm
- Hans Crescent, next to Harrods: September 17, 10am-12noon
