Do I need a port of London authority permit

Do I need a PLA permit to detect Southend on sea beach?
Despite being “on sea” it is actually in the Thames estuary. Today I did the two hour drive to get to frinton on sea but Southend is closer.

Thanks.

No you don't. I think that you can still see the PLA maps on their website. ::g

Thanks, out of interest if I was to buy a standard permit does that mean I can only detect in the orange marked sections of the Thames on the map or can I detect in the sections that are not marked any colour at all as well?

I always go to the same places so I seldom refer to the maps. There will be a description of what the colours mean somewhere on the site. ::g
