Order number: 28, 2023

Purfleet Remembrance Day Parade

Whereas application has been made to the Borough Council of Thurrock for the temporary closure of the road described below, on the occasion of the Purfleet Remembrance Day Parade on Sunday 5 November 2023 as the roads are likely to be thronged or liable to be obstructed.

And whereas the said Borough Council is satisfied that the closure of the highways so described is necessary as the ordinary day to day use of the highway is likely to be obstructed or dislocated by a substantial number of persons.

And whereas the Police have raised no objection to the making of this Order provided that appropriate arrangements are made to exclude vehicles from the roads affected by this Order other than those vehicles associated with the event and that suitable closure notices are displayed.

Now therefore the Borough Council of Thurrock in pursuance of the powers conferred by Section 21 of the Town Police Clauses Act 1847 and of all other enabling powers hereby makes the following Order:

1. Centurion Way, Chieftan Drive, Tank Hill Road, High Street, London Road to the War Memorial at St Stephen's Church shall be temporarily closed in order to facilitate the Purfleet Remembrance Day Parade. The roads close and then open as the parade passes through and then again as the parade makes its way back.
2. The Order will come into force at 10:15am until 10:30am on Sunday 5 November 2023 and then again 11am until 11:30am.
