Public Spaces Protection Orders

Public Spaces Protection Order No 2: vehicles

Live from 01 February 2017, extended on 01 February 2020

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 on 01 February 2020 for a further three years. During year three, it will be reviewed to determine whether it should be extended for a further three years.
