Decision for Coastal & Beach Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) renewal to 2027

The current PSPO has helped protect our coastline and beaches through one code of conduct which replaced all previous beach byelaws. The PSPO was adopted and came into force on 1 April 2021. The introduction of the new PSPO has created a safer beach environment for all to enjoy, through deterring crime, anti-social behaviour and other undesirable activities. The decision to renew for a further three years proposes TDC continue the current PSPO until 1st April 2027.
