Decision for Coastal & Beach Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO)

Thanet District Council is proposing to introduce a new Beaches and Coast Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO). Creating a new PSPO will help protect our coastline and beaches with one code of conduct that replaces all previous beach byelaws. The introduction of the new PSPO will create a safer beach environment for all to enjoy, through deterring and reducing crime and anti-social behaviour and other undesirable activities, which our local communities and visitors are impacted by currently.
