The government is consulting on proposals to legislate to put it beyond doubt that local authorities, including parish councils, cannot charge parkrun or junior parkrun for the use of public parks. The consulting also asks whether the proposals should be extended beyond parkrun and junior parkrun, to other organisations or types of use of public parks.
This consultation is open to everyone. The government particularly seeks the views of individual members of the public, of local authorities, of organisations that use public parks, of individuals who use public parks, of those bodies that represent the interests of local authorities at all levels, of those bodies that have an interest in public health, and of those bodies that have an interest in public parks.
All responses need to be received by no later than 5.30pm on 5th July 2017.
