Antisocial behaviour byelaws
On 21 November 2008 Council Assembly voted to approve two new sets of byelaws to stop irresponsible and antisocial behaviour in Southwark.
The first set (pdf, 290kb) controls activities in pleasure grounds, public walks and open spaces. It includes byelaws on protecting these public spaces, their wildlife and the public, horse riding, cycling, children's play areas, dangerous games and sports, protection of waterways, powered model aircraft and provides for the removal of offenders.
The second set (pdf, 20kb) concerns good rule and government and includes byelaws on climbing upon and hanging from bridges, dangerous games near and on highways, interference with life saving equipment and road warning lamps, skateboarding, touting, and urinating in public.
Copies of the byelaws are kept at 160 Tooley Street, SE1 2QH and can be inspected without payment on any weekday during the usual office hours.
Copies of the byelaws can be supplied on receipt of an application accompanied by a fee of £1 for each copy by contacting Southwark Legal Services at the above address. Alternatively they can be downloaded from this page.
