Bye-Laws for the Country Park, the Nuttery and the Playing Fields

Clare Town Council is publishing this set of bye-laws for various areas of Clare to ensure that everyone understands what is permitted.  The format of each follows government guidelines. 

All documents are in pdf format:


Bye-law 2 in each case specifies that the Council or its agents (Clare Castle Country Park Trust and the Playing Fields Association, the Management Trust for the Playing Fields), may give permission for a wide of activities.


The list of prohibitions may look severe at first, but they are written to ensure that specific permission is sought from the appropriate authority for each area in advance.  They are not written to exclude properly organised events or activities, or ordinary daily use.


It remains the responsibility of the Council and its Managing Agents to ensure the safe use of its facilities.


The Car Park of Clare Castle Country Park will continue to be administered and managed by St Edmundsbury Borough Council.  Dog fouling is separately covered by government law and prosecutions are carried out by St Edmundsbury Borough Council.


Comments on these bye-laws are welcome.  They should be forwarded to the Clerk of the Town Council by 1st April 2016, labelled Bye-laws Consultation.

The Town Council will then consider amendments before agreeing to the bye-laws.  They will then be sent to the Secretary of State for endorsement.
