Byelaws and bad behaviour on the beach

  • by JW

How much provision is there already?


There have been concerns about the image of Sidmouth:

“We need to show Sidmouth in its best light.” – Vision Group for Sidmouth

The suggestion has been made that there should be  a new bylaw to protect the beach from bad behaviour, noise and rubbish:

‘Unruly behaviour’ on Sidmouth’s Clifton Beach – Councillor calls for new bylaws |

However, it does seem that the current bylaw for East Devon’s shores and promenades already provides considerable provision…

The pdf of the Byelaw is now available on the VGS website:
