Our strategy ensures that our consultations are inclusive, accessible and a worthwhile experience for everyone involved.

PSPO consultation

We are currently consulting on the Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) we have for Chelmsford city centre.

We plan to remove the ban on aggressive begging, as we can deal with this behaviour more effectively using community protection warnings and notices.

We want to extend the PSPO for a further three years from 1 September 2019. The PSPO means we can control activities that affect the quality of life of people who live, visit, and work in the city centre. The PSPO will cover alcohol consumption, the distribution of free literature, fly-posting and the use of advertising boards.

This will ensure the quality of life of those who live, visit, and work in the city centre.

You can:

  • view the draft PSPO
  • comment online
  • comment by post via Public Health and Protection Services, Chelmsford City Council, Civic Centre, Duke Street, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 1JE

You need to submit any comments on the proposed PSPO by 5pm on Thursday 22 August 2019.
