No BBQs or fires in parks and open spaces

As we continue to experience hot, dry weather conditions, we’re reminding residents and visitors that BBQs and campfires are not permitted in any of our parks, open spaces or nature reserves, due to the risk of causing an accidental fire which could destroy wildlife, landscapes and be a danger to people and property.
