Notices of Motion

Councillor Adrian Kirkbride submitted the following motion –


‘This Council understands the anxiety and stress caused to vulnerable people, family pets and wildlife by the random use of fireworks in the days before and after November 5th each year, or outside of properly organised firework events. It therefore resolves to -


  1. Continue to actively support public awareness campaigns from all relevant agencies around the impact of fireworks on vulnerable people and animal welfare and the dangers of improper use, including the precautions that can be taken to mitigate risks
  2. Support the RSPCA public awareness campaign regarding fireworks and firework displays
  3. Request all public firework displays on Allerdale owned land to be advertised in advance of the event, allowing residents to take precautions for their vulnerable people and animals
  4. Write to the UK Government urging them to introduce legislation to limit the maximum noise level of fireworks to 90dB for those sold to the public for private displays, and to nationally promote the dangers and legalities around sale and misuse of fireworks’
