Parks Byelaws Update

Byelaws have been proposed to provide a tool to deal with persistent ASB in parks and open spaces. There was a 14 week public consultation period in which 78% of respondents felt bye-laws would be positive step. Issue would be how to enforce them? Enforcement via a fine would be used as a last resort, as main area around enforcement would be in educating those causing problems. Main mechanism of enforcement would be by police, especially PCSOs. Council officers would also have powers but not as strong as police as would have to work via BCC’s own legal services. There will be a half-day scrutiny meeting to test bye-laws, and involvement of BPF will be sought. There has been some alteration to original number of sites proposed to be covered by prospective bye-laws as government advice was that bye-laws should only be for sites where problems are known.
