Plans for tougher beach rules edge closer

Plans for tougher beach rules edge closer

by Tom Martin (June 2022)

TOUGHER beach rules along Sefton’s coast have edged closer as the council prepares to pass the new measures at a meeting next month.

Local residents were asked for their opinion during a recent consultation on a new Public Spaces Protective Order (PSPO), which is aimed to crackdown on anti-social behaviour.

Feedback from local communities, visitors and partner agencies have been used to shape the drafted order.

Support was given on restrictions such as, confiscation of alcohol from those causing anti-social behaviour in certain locations, a total ban of fires and BBQs, and no unauthorised motorised vehicles in visitor areas.

If approved, it would give the local authority the ability to hand out on-the-spot fines to anyone breaking the rules.

The proposed PSPO will now be taken to a full Council meeting on July 14, with the aim for the order to be active from July 2022 to July 2025.
