Proposed byelaws to reduce antisocial behaviour at Rhoose Point


Published 22 May 2015


The proposed byelaws, which would prohibit swimming, fishing, and camping in the area, would be enforced where people persist with antisocial behaviour and are not willing to stop at the request of the council or police.


In January 2013 a consultation was launched to local residents and organisations on the proposal to introduce byelaws at Rhoose Point to tackle complaints of antisocial behaviour in the area. Due to a change in legislation, the Council is required to undertake another consultation.


Of those that responded to the 2013 consultation, over 60% said they had experienced some form of antisocial behaviour in the area in the past twelve months, with over 80% agreeing that the Council should introduce byelaws to help tackle antisocial behaviour.


Residents of Rhoose Point will receive a consultation pack containing relevant information and a consultation response form to fill in and return.


All other Vale residents wishing to have their say can send written responses to FREEPOST RTGU- JGBH- YYJZ, Rhoose Point Byelaws Consultation, Corporate and Customer Services, Vale of Glamorgan Council, Barry, CF63 4RU, or email
