Section 2 – Byelaws for good rule and government and suppression of nuisances
3.Section 2 consolidates the provision of section 235 of the Local Government Act 1972 “the 1972 Act”) into the Act. This enables county borough councils and county councils in Wales to make byelaws for the good rule and government of their areas and for the prevention and suppression of nuisances in their areas. Byelaws cannot be made under this section if provision for the purpose in question is made, or could be made, under another enactment. Byelaws under this power can, for example, prohibit skateboarding, ball games or touting in certain places where it causes a particular danger or nuisance, or can seek to regulate the manner in which those activities can be conducted.
