Breaches of government social distancing guidelines

Published: Wednesday, 8th April 2020

We have been asked by a number of tenants what they should do if their neighbours are flouting the government’s social distancing rules.

If you are concerned due to witnessing clear and obvious breaches of the government’s guidelines, the names (if you have them) and addresses of those responsible should be passed to Essex Police.  You can report this online at or by calling 101.

Essex Police may not be able to attend every incident but we at South Essex Homes are working closely with them to follow up any such reports and sharing information about repeat offenders.

We have advised residents in sheltered and hostel accommodation not to congregate in communal areas and adhere to social distancing rules.

Our SEPS security team are continuing to carry out patrols of the town centre tower blocks and have been successful in reminding people not to loiter and to stay at home.

Thank you for your vigilance and for supporting us to encourage residents to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.
