Cabinet were apprised of the outcome of a public consultation exercise on the possible introduction of bye-laws for the public open space and lagoon areas at Rhoose Point.

 

There had been growing concern over recent years amongst certain Rhoose Point residents of various forms of anti-social behaviour on the development, particularly associated with the lagoons and Nature Reserve areas.

 

Residents had asked that consideration be given to the introduction of a range of local bye-laws for the area, with fines able to be levied for certain levels of inappropriate or otherwise unacceptable behaviour.

 

Cabinet, at its meeting of 9 September, 2013 (Minute No.C2017) approved a public consultation exercise to seek views on the introduction of bye-laws at Rhoose Point.  This consultation was undertaken between 27 January, 2014 and 1 March, 2014.

 

A report detailing the outcome of the consultation exercise was attached at Appendix A to the report. 

 

The introduction and adoption of new bye-laws would allow designated Council officers to work with the Police and local community to deal with those people who persisted with certain prohibited activities. The proposed bye-laws were attached at Appendix B to the report.

  • Swimming;
  • Fishing;

This was a matter for Executive and Council decision.
