This consultation notice is now closed and no further representations about the byelaws will be accepted.


Like many other local authorities, Three Rivers DC has created byelaws to serve particular purposes and tackle local issues within the district.  Some of these byelaws date back many years.  Following the Government’s implementation of new arrangements for byelaws and the preparation of updated ‘model’ byelaw templates, TRDC has undertaken a review of its current  byelaws for Parks and Open Spaces, with the aim of modernising our byelaws.

Notice is hereby given that Three Rivers District Council intends to make new Byelaws for Pleasure Grounds, Public Walks and Open Spaces.  The byelaws will effect all of the open spaces owned by Three Rivers DC and cover the whole of the geographical district of Three Rivers.

Copies of the proposed byelaws will be kept at the offices of the Council at:

Three Rivers House, Northway, Rickmansworth, Herts, WD3 1RL

and will be open to inspection without payment on any weekday during usual business hours for 28 days from the publication of this notice.

The byelaws may also be viewed here.
