Essex Police issue a dispersal order due to planned car meet

27/03/2024 About 1 minute Share article:
A dispersal order will be in place from Wednesday 27th March for 48 hours in parts of Chelmsford and Braintree.

The dispersal order follows concerns relating to a planned large car meet planned for Wednesday 27th March, with a meeting place advertised in Chelmsford.

Reports from the local community regarding previous meets have included incidents of anti-social behaviour, dangerous driving, and excessive noise levels.

To reduce disruption to the residents in the areas, a dispersal order has been put in place, covering most of the Chelmsford district and the A131 in Great Notley, Braintree. The order also includes all key car parks in the areas.

It starts at 6pm on Wednesday 27th March and will remain in place until 6pm on Friday 29th March.

Acting Inspector Graham Thomas said:

“We use these orders in a considered and proportionate way, to make sure they are targeting anti-social behaviour and allowing people to go about their daily lives.

“We will not tolerate dangerous driving in any part of Chelmsford and Braintree, and our officers will be out in the community over the next couple of days and over the Bank Holiday Weekend to make sure drivers are behaving safely and responsibly.”
