Cost of living support
Colchester City Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.
The Colchester City Council (“the Council”) makes this order under section 59 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, having consulted as required by section 72.
The order takes effect on 30 September 2022 and has a duration of 3 years.
This order relates to the whole of the Colchester City Council District as shown edged red on the attached plan (the restricted area).
The Council makes the order, being satisfied on reasonable grounds, that the following activities have been carried out in the restricted area which have had a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality.
The Council is also satisfied that the effect, or likely effect of these activities is, or is likely to be, of a persistent or continuing nature and these activities are unreasonable and justify the restrictions imposed by the notice.
Failure without reasonable excuse to comply with the prohibitions or requirements imposed by this order is a summary offence under section 67 of the 2014 Act.
Any person guilty of an offence under sections 67 is liable on a summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale.
A constable or an authorised person may under section 68 of the 2014 Act issue a Fixed Penalty Notice to anyone he or she has reason to believe has committed an offence under section 67 in relation to this order. Persons who breach this order, shall when ordered to do so by an authorised person disperse either immediately or by such time as directed.
