Corby residents have been urged to have their say on Corby Council’s by-laws.

The series of new and existing local laws are up for review with a consultation process starting today (October 8) and running until November 8.

One of the new laws that could be introduced is a controversial ban on drones.

Corby Council has had by-laws covering its recreation grounds, parks, play areas and open spaces since July 1972.

The council says it wants to make the by-laws 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 and ensure that any by-laws are a robust framework for tackling the spates of anti-social behaviour that happen from time to time.

The council says it sees by-laws as being a last resort that is not its intention to place unnecessary restrictions on residents, but instead 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.

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

To submit your views or for more information on the by-laws email culture.leisure@corby.gov.uk or call 01536 464043. Hard copies of completed consultation forms can be sent to Ms J McKinnon, Corby Council, Culture and Leisure 2nd Floor, Deene House, New Post Office Square, Corby, NN17 1GD.
