Corner of Brampton Road and Kingsbury Road

Reported via desktop in the Street needs sweeping category anonymously at 13:54, Friday 23 February 2024

Sent to Brent Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5620736.


There is a lot of Indian men spitting out paan in and around this area and this is leaving the pavements looking really dirty as it leaves a brown residue. I for one do not want to be treading on it by accident.

For your information, paan is 'Indian Chewing Tobacco'.

Can we please firstly clean up the pavements, and secondly have enforcment officers to issue out penalty fines to anyone spitting out paan.

Thank you.

  • Unfortunately the problem reported is not in a location covered by our Street Cleansing contractor to whom it has been sent, so we have had to close this report.

    State changed to: No further action

  • I'm not sure why this isn't covered by Veolia for cleaning purposes (I'd need a photograph to understand the exact location) but Veolia don't enforce the public space protection order against spitting, so you would need to report that at nuisance-crime-and-community-safety/ public-spaces-protection-orders#pspos (note that the council has limited enforcement resources, so they are most likely to act if you can give specific times of day when they are likely to catch people in the act).

    (Also, you should avoid specifying characteristics of people here,)

    (Most betel nut stain reports get rejected as below the contractual threshold for cleaning, rather than because of the location. It is possible that the wrong option was selected, although it is also possible that this is an unfenced shop forecourt.)

    Not from the council.
