A Section 34 dispersal order is in force for a third night this week.
It gives police the power to ask any individual to leave the area in question.
Despite the order being in place during Monday and Tuesday nights, further incidents of anti-social behaviour took place.
Inspector Chris Abbott said: “Today there have been several incidents of anti-social behaviour, which we know will have had an impact on how safe people feel in their neighbourhood. As a result I have authorised this dispersal order.
“Anti-social behaviour covers a range of offences and can involve harm to an individual, to the wider community or to the environment, leaving victims feeling harassed, alarmed or distressed.
“We are committed to tackling this type of crime and if necessary, further dispersal orders will be authorised when this one has ended.
“We continue to ask parents of children in the area to be intrusive as to their whereabouts and their activities when they are not at home.”
The order began at 6pm on Thursday August 8 and runs until 6am on Friday August 9.
Police say they will review the order during Friday and may implement further dispersal orders.
