Byelaws are local laws to deal with local issues. The council may apply to the Secretary of State for permission to operate byelaws covering particular activities.
Failure to comply with byelaws is a criminal offence. In many cases any person breaking a byelaw is liable to a fine of an amount not exceeding:
- level 3 on the standard scale; or
- such lower amount as is specified in the byelaws
for each offence.
The council’s byelaws can be found in the document list below. The Pamber Forest Nature Reserve byelaw is only available in paper format by contacting the Planning and Litigation Team on 01256 845225.
