Decision details

PSPO - Leigh (Anti-social Behaviour)

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


The Cabinet considered a report of the Executive Director (Environment and Place) presenting the Public Spaces Protection Order (Leigh-on-Sea and Chalkwell Seafront and Adjoining Areas) for renewal.




That the renewal of the Public Spaces Protection Order (Leigh-on-Sea and Chakwell Seafront and Adjoining Areas) No1 of 2021 (“the 2021 PSPO), be approved.


Reasons for decision:


The renewal of the PSPO will enable continued necessary control of relevant matters relating to behaviours listed in the Order and the ability for officers to issue Fixed Penalty Notices where breaches of the Order are witnessed and those responsible are identified.


Other options:


Not to renew the 2021 PSPO.  This would result in the current PSPO expiring at midnight on 31st July 2024, and this enforcement power would no longer be available to Essex Police and the Council’s authorised officers for tackling ASB in the restricted area.
