Chelmsford City Council

Riverside car park

We are currently consulting on a new Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) that would ban certain anti-social behaviour in some car parks in the city centre. We are also consulting on extending the PSPO for fly posting and roadside advertisements in Chelmsford. You can find out more about the consultations and have your say.
