Have your views heard on byelaws for Corby’s pleasure grounds, public walks and open space

Release Date: 
Friday, October 5, 2018 - 16:30


Residents of Corby are being asked to give their views on Corby Borough Council’s byelaw review through a consultation process taking place from Monday 8th October - Thursday 8th November 2018.


Corby Borough Council has had byelaws covering its recreation grounds, parks, play areas and open spaces since July 1972. It was decided that it is now time to review those byelaws and bring them up to date. In particular, the Council wants to:


  • make the byelaws less complex and more consistent with modern practice;
  • remove restrictions that are no longer required;
  • reflect changes to the areas owned or controlled by the Council
  • ensure that any byelaws are a robust framework for tackling the spates of anti-social behaviour that happen from time to time.


The Borough Council sees byelaws as being a last resort. It is not its intention to place unnecessary restrictions on residents, rather it wants local residents to be able to use and enjoy its facilities for the widest possible range of activities that are consistent with the peaceful enjoyment of others.


Corby Borough Council will aim to resolve issues through education, dialogue and persuasion before resorting to the application of the byelaws.


To view the draft byelaws document, an analysis of the proposed changes and the online consultation form please go to www.corby.gov.uk/home/council/byelaws or hard copies can be found at the Corby Cube reception desk.
