Public camping is not permitted on any of our parks and open spaces. Occasionally camping for participants in a particular event is allowed but this needs to be requested and approved through the events booking system.

Please note: If you wish to hold an event in one of our parks or open spaces please be aware you will have to plan in advance as we will require:

  • Full event details
  • Detailed risk assessments
  • Public liability insurance documents
  • Site plans  
  • Completed event application

At the very latest 28 days prior to your event taking place.

Responsible behaviour in parks, open spaces and nature reserves

  • please keep dogs under control and clear up after them using the bins provided
  • use the litter and the recycling bins provided
  • respect the trees, grass and planting and do not cause them any damage
  • do not obstruct, disturb or annoy any other person using the area
  • do not erect any tent, booth, stand, building or other structure
  • do not enter or allow your dog to enter any ornamental lake, pond or stream or other water area
  • do not pollute any water areas of any sort
  • use of drones to fly over any Wychavon District Council land is not permitted


  • barbeques (inc small portable trays) - see below*
  • golf
  • motor cycling
  • horse riding
  • metal detectors are not permitted in any of our parks or open spaces

*Please note - we do not allow barbeques, including the small portable trays, to be used in our Parks and Open Spaces as experience has shown that they can cause expensive and unsightly damage to park furniture and/or the grass. Also there is a danger of vegetation fires and the associated left-over food and waste is a potential hazard. We ask for your co-operation in this matter.
