New rules for Glasgow Parks Management.

Glasgow City Council is proposing to create new Parks Management Rules.

Glasgow's parks and open spaces are for everyone to use and enjoy, and these Rules are designed to encourage all parks users enjoy our parks and open spaces safely and responsibly.

We encourage park users to:

Take responsibility for their own actions
Respect other people
Care for the environment
Help safeguard parks and open spaces for future generations
The proposed management rules will be available for public inspection online or at Exchange House, 231 George Street reception.

They're still cracking down on the keep-fit groups that use Kelvingrove too.

I sometimes wonder how many of such comments come from people who don't pay Council tax in Glasgow yet happily use the city's parks, and other amenities, for free.

Here it begins, first we go for Independence and then we'll all want different parts of the country to be Independent. We'll be checking for Glasgow Passports to enter our parks and Edinburgh Passports to visit the Mound....it's the beginning of a slippery slope... ::): ::): ::):

Mention of three dogs at a time. How about a crack down on the professional dog walkers especially in Dawsholm Park.

You're using professional in no more than the 'getting paid' sense?

“Unauthorised Gathering” means any gathering, meeting or assembly in the park
comprising 20 or more persons which is organised by any individual, group, club or
society or other organisation which has not had the prior written consent of the
Director, howsoever organised and includes any kind of informal gathering advertised
on Facebook, Twitter or any other social media operating from time to time on the
Internet, mobile messaging service or any other electronic means.


Semaphore is exempt I see.

The Director may make an order exempting any park, or any part of any park for a
specified purpose and a specified time from the access rights which would otherwise
be exercisable. This will include where the Director has reason to believe that the
park or part of the park will be used by unauthorised gatherings and said gathering is
likely to result in a breach of these Rules.


Except of course when we rent it out for concerts, or Orange Walks where breach of the peace is part of the event.

Alcohol cannot be sold or supplied in any park except with the prior written consent of
the Director and where a proper licence has been granted.

9.2 Alcohol cannot be consumed in any park, except with the prior written consent of the
Director and in accordance with the Glasgow City Council Byelaws Prohibiting
Consumption of Alcoholic Liquor in Designated Places.

9.3 No one who, in the opinion of any Authorised Officer of the Council, is under the
influence of alcohol, drugs or solvents shall enter or remain in any park or buildings
therein.


So all we need to do is write seeking permission and sign it DF Concerts.

No person shall in any park, except with the prior written consent of the Director, and
after agreeing to comply with the Conditions of Let issued:

(a) organise or take part in any performance, event, ceremony, exhibition,
assembly or procession or such activity,
(b) display or distribute any advertising material or any written or printed paper or
document,
(c) organise or participate in any betting or gaming activity or any lottery,
(d) recruit, drill or practice military or similar operations,
(e) use any radio controlled equipment,
(f) play or practice any game or sport in contravention of any notice,
(g) play or practice any organised sport,
(h) leave any goal posts or other equipment overnight,
(i) make use of any park as an aerodrome or landing ground for aircraft, except
in an emergency, or fly any aircraft (including power driven models)


I suppose it depends on the definition of "organised"

Commercial activities shall include, but are not limited to, the following:-

(a) professional dog walking service,
(b) fitness, personal or other training classes which make use of any part of the
park or any building thereon,
(c) any person or organisation seeking to use any park or park building for
outdoor educational provision, child care provision, nursery or kindergarten
activities,
(d) guided walks for which payment is made by participants,
(e) performances, events, ceremonies, exhibitions, assemblies or processions or
such activities where there is commercial gain.


The definition of commercial where a charity may run of these activities with a charge to cover costs.
"I before E, except after C" works in most cases but there are exceptions.

Is this a money raising exercise as they have gala type days at Knightswood Park. So does this mean the guys who sail their boats at Richmond Park & Knightswood Pond will have to pay. If they have a "wee" gala day will they have to pay a fee? If the Orange Lodge go to Glasgow Green/Queens Park etc how do you stop carry outs? How much do you charge say the Orange Lodge if they bring a couple of thousand people. Compared with how much do you charge a concert at Bellahouston Park. The amount of alcohol at Bellahouston at a recent concert was quite amazing.
