Dispersal orders set up in response to planned illegal car meet in Chelmsford and Canvey

The Canvey dispersal are

A dispersal order will be in place across much of Chelmsford this weekend after police received reports of a planned illegal car meet.

The event is planned for 6pm at the Chelmer Valley Park and Ride and is advertised as a paid-for event but no permission has been given by the local authority for it to take place and it is therefore illegal.

The order, mapped in the picture, will come into force at 3pm on Saturday July 31 and covers much of the city, including all key car parks where such a car meet could be set up.

It will run until 6am on Sunday August 1.

A dispersal order will also be in place in Canvey following reports that the car meet may relocate to the area.

The order has been authorised from 3pm on Saturday July 31 until 3am on Monday August 2 and will cover the area mapped, including Roscommon Way.

A dispersal order is not a blanket ban on people being in the area, rather it gives officers powers to move anyone believed to be behaving antisocially from the area.

Breaching any direction given under the order is a criminal offence and, if you do, you could be arrested.
