The PSPOs began on Monday 12 June 2017 https://www.hastings.gov.uk/my_community/community_safety/pspo For 2017:
1. The number of CPNWs issued: 0
2. The number of CPNs issued : 0
3. The number of FPNs issued : 9
5. Civil injunctions 0
6. Confiscation of property 0. There are no byelaws regarding specifically rough sleeping on the beach. There is a byelaw about the unauthorised erection of structures on the seashore areas which includes tents. We do not hold data for every encounter the Wardens may have with a person in a tent on the beach but we can say that in 2015 no enforcement actions were issued. In 2016 enforcement papers were served on 5 different tents and in 2017 enforcement papers were served on another 5 different tents.
The cost of installing 40x signs relating to the byelaws was £800
