Events

Large events such as music festivals can be very popular but not everyone is always happy about them.
If you are concerned about events on a public open space near you, we may be able to support you.

 

Are you concerned about the impact of an upcoming event in your area?

We believe everyone should have the right to enjoy their local open spaces.

However, sometimes people’s use of an open space can inadvertently affect other local residents and the open space itself in a less than positive way.

For example, large events such as fun runs or music festivals are very popular. Often, they are held on local open spaces but not everyone in the community is always very happy about them.

Events like these, whilst fun for the participants, can cause all kinds of headaches for the local community.

Increased traffic and the associated pollution, litter and noise are just some of the nuisance problems people often come to us about.

If you are concerned about an upcoming event or regular public events held on an open space near you, we might be able to support you.

We may also have a local Open Spaces Society volunteer (known as a local correspondent) in your area who may be able to help,

Ensure events don't cause issues in your area, join us today.

Coronavirus closures

Path campaigners with long memories will recall the widespread and damaging rights-of-way closures during the foot-and-mouth epizootic in 2001–02.  Fears that SARS-COV2 would bring similar closures have proved generally to be mistaken — on the contrary, Government encouragement for continuing exercise during lockdown has greatly increased the use of some rights of way, and proved…

We oppose Clapham Common fencing plan

We have objected to an application from Lambeth Borough Council for fencing on Clapham Common.   The council wants to erect temporary steel fencing around the ‘events site’ on the common for three weeks, from 15 August to 5 September, with the intention of holding festivals there.  Because the land is common, it must have…
