It has become more and more popular for our open spaces to be used by organised groups of people, usually under the direction of a leader, to run, exercise, and operate other forms of physical activity.
It has therefore become important to monitor the level of activity, to ensure that general rules such as byelaws and local ‘open space’ rules are adhered to.
In addition to the current set of rules governing the use of an open space, it is Petersfield Town Council’s intention to gain information regarding the use of open spaces by organised groups. This will ensure that we can regulate the number of groups meeting, and also be consciously aware of all activities taking place on our open spaces, as we often receive enquiries from the general public.
The current open spaces are The Heath, Bell Hill Recreation Ground, Love Lane playing fields, Avenue Playing Fields, Penns Farm, Borough Road recreation ground, High Meadow, Woods Meadow or Paddock Way.
