IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM KIRKLEES COUNCIL:
We have received a formal notification from the council with regard to RC model cars and aircraft
Radio controlled cars. These are not permitted in the park other than in an enclosed space, such
as the tennis courts, where they cannot be a nuisance to other visitors. The problem is not so much
the car, but more the effect it has on other users of the site, particularly when used around dogs or
on footpaths. If people are wanting to use a sports area for it's intended purpose then that will take
precedence over the radio controlled car.
Petrol powered cars are not permitted at all due to the noise pollution that they cause.
Radio controlled aircraft. These are not permitted to fly from anywhere within the boundaries of
the park, nor are they allowed to land within the park. This is due to the high risk of injury or
accident to people in a public park - this risk is not acceptable for the Council to allow the activity
to go ahead on a site of this nature.
Any users of a radio controlled vehicle do so at their own risk and are not covered by the Council's insurance
if any accident or damage, to person or property, is caused.
