Glenfield's green spaces

The Parish Council are encouraging residents to help shape an updated set of byelaws designed to enable everyone to share and enjoy Glenfield's parks and green spaces. Our current byelaws from 1955 only cover Ellis Park and we now have a number of other public open spaces.
The proposed byelaws focus on ensuring everyone can continue to use the parish's parks and green spaces responsibly, considerately and safely.

In March 2016 the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) announced changes to the byelaw approval process and as a result, the council is now asking people to give their views on the updated byelaws as part of a new public consultation.
Feedback from this new consultation will form the final set of updated byelaws for submission for approval to the DCLG.
Amongst the new byelaws, 13 identify activities that will require council consent while others are designed to prevent nuisance activities.
Although the vast majority of people use Glenfield's parks considerately, nuisance behaviour can hamper the enjoyment and safe use of the parish's green spaces.
The updated byelaws give the council scope to tackle any problem behaviour as it happens.

In addition, the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) requires the council to carry out an assessment of our proposed byelaws, informed by consultation with people who could be affected by them.
As part of the roll out of the proposed byelaws Police and Community Support Officers (PSCOs) will work alongside council officers taking a supportive, informative approach to encourage people to enjoy the parish's green spaces without adversely affecting other users and local communities.

The consultation runs from 10th July 2017 and closes 9th October 2017.

As a result of the DCLG changes to the byelaw approval process, the Parish Council now has the final decision on adopting new byelaws.
Following feedback from the public consultation a final set of byelaws will be presented to DCLG for approval before being formally adopted by full Council.
