Model byelaw for local authorities to regulate the use of promenades.
Section 83 of the Public Health Acts Amendment Act 1907 enables local authorities to make byelaws to regulate the user of any promenade and to provide for the preservation of order and good conduct for the purpose of preventing danger, obstruction or annoyance to persons using the promenade.
Byelaws should not be adopted en bloc, but only as genuinely required to address an existing problem. If councils are in doubt about the layout of the byelaws they are advised to use the standard scheme and not seal the byelaws until they have received the approval of the secretary of state.
This model set includes byelaws on:
- interference with life-saving equipment
- kites and buggies
- motor vehicles
- protection of flower beds
- removal of signs and structures
- unauthorised erection of structures
