Enforcement action taken

Under new powers to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in the area, Gateshead Council can give directions relating to individual premises, events and public outdoor places. 

The regulations include powers for local authorities to issue a direction to :

  • restrict access to, or close, individual premises
  • prohibit certain events (or types of event) from taking place
  • restrict access to, or close, public outdoor places (or types of outdoor public places)

Where possible, we will always work with businesses to explain the rules and provide support on how to meet their responsibilities before moving to enforcement action.

Copies of notices will be removed from the register:

  1. if they are withdrawn
  2. if and while they are subject to appeal, or
  3. after a period of five years, whichever happens sooner

Visit the Gov.uk website for more information.
