On 1 April 2019 Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council will be replaced by a single district council called West Suffolk Council. It will entirely replace the borough and district councils but will continue to deliver the same services while finding improved ways of supporting communities, businesses and the local economy. Over the next few weeks you may notice changes to the website, forms, letters and emails, and there will be limited access to some of our online systems as we prepare for the creation of the new council.
The flying of drones, irrespective of size, is not permitted in any of our parks or open spaces within this council.
The guidance set out by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) states that drone’s should not be flown within 150ft (50m) of people and property. The majority of our parks and open spaces are open to the public at any time and we are required to ensure that they are safe for all to use.
