Public Spaces Protection Orders

Public Spaces Protection Order No 2: vehicles

Live from 01 February 2017, extended on 01 February 2023

There was a significant increase in the amount of motor vehicles and their drivers/passengers taking part in unauthorised car and motorcycle enthusiast meetings on and around Great Yarmouth Seafront during 2016. An unfortunate side effect of the meetings was an increase in anti-social behaviour such as wheel spins, engine popping, loud music, littering, abusive language and racing.

The increase in the numbers of vehicles and the reports of anti-social behaviour from residents, businesses and visitors led a multi-agency group made up of the Council, the County Council and the Police to decide to consult the public on whether to create a Public Space Protection Order to help tackle some of the issues being caused by car and motorbike enthusiasts. 

The Public Spaces Protection Order No 2 - vehicle-related anti-social behaviour came into force on 01 February 2017 for a period of up to three years and was subsequently extended for a further three years on the following dates:

01 February 2020

01 February 2023

 During the consultation for the current period it was determined and agreed that the order would be varied slightly to also include the excessive revving of motor vehicles.
