Sky lanterns and balloons (ban on use)

Sky lanterns and helium balloon releases are banned in our council parks.

We’ve also asked parish and town councils and large venues in the district to prohibit balloons and sky lanterns from being released on their land.

The decision was made due to concerns about the environmental impact of the balloons and potential risk to the public and animals.

Please support this ban to help protect animals and local wildlife and improve the environment of our parks.
