WATCH | Extraordinary Meeting - disposable barbecues

At an Extraordinary Council Meeting on 3 September councillors noted the significant recent increase in the use of disposable barbecues in the open countryside in the district, and the number of wild fires that have had a devastating and long-lasting deleterious impact on the ecology and biodiversity of our precious natural landscapes.

The meeting voted to note that work is already underway by officers towards a renewal date on Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) in effect within the Derbyshire Dales with commitments to undertake public consultation in accordance with statutory provisions.

It was agreed that the Director of Community and Environmental Services be given urgently delegated authority to engage with other local authorities and partners to investigate the potential and willingness to develop a multi-agency approach designed to increase education to the public with regard to this issue and consider the introduction of a PSPO, with a report brought to the Community and Environment Committee to provide an update on progress.

The meeting was broadcast live and can be viewed again on our YouTube channel below:
