New byelaws focus on St George Parks
New byelaws are set to come into force on the 28th April 2017 in a bid to deter low-level anti-social behaviour in Bristol’s parks.
The legislation designates specific areas for certain activities, with Bristol City Council planning to release more information in the coming weeks.
Specifically, the legislation states that BBQs have been banned at the Troopers Hill Nature Reserve. In other parks, the lighting of BBQs will be limited to designated areas with properly constructed stoves.
Similarly, fishing is now banned from St George Park; however, it is allowed at lakes and rivers in and adjacent to all other parks.
Specific areas have been designated for flying model aircraft and drones, including part of Dundridge playing fields.
