Keeping Beddington Park safe and welcoming

Sutton’s parks are there for all our residents and visitors to use and enjoy. In order to keep Beddington Park tidy and respect other park users, we ask visitors to follow some simple guidelines:

  • 1. Be considerate of all other visitors and the local wildlife
  • dispose of all litter in the bins provided. If you expect to produce a lot of litter, from a picnic for example, consider bringing bin liners with you
  • 2. Park only in designated car parks. Do not park along access roads, or in a position that blocks another vehicle. A map of the main parking areas is shown below
  • 3. Please clean up after your dogs and dispose of dog fouling in the bins provided
  • 4. Keep pets and young children supervised at all times.
  • 5. Do not light fires in the park, or use barbecues.  Please note that due to anti-social behaviour, excessive littering, and air quality concerns the barbecue rental scheme has been withdrawn and it is unlawful to light fires and barbecue in any of Sutton's parks.
  • 6. Do not erect tents, gazebos or structures without permission.

Please see our parks byelaws for a more detailed list of unauthorised activities in parks.

Beddington Park Enforcement Trial 2018

The Enforcement Trail has been extended for six months until November 2019 as the decision on the future of the services in the park has been delayed.

In order to ensure that Beddington Park remains open and accessible to all members of the community, it was decided by Beddington & Wallington Local Committee to introduce an enforcement trial during 2018. A trial rather than permanent contract was proposed to test whether or not the solution will be effective and affordable. 

Environmental enforcement. Littering, dog fouling, setting fires and other contraventions of the parks byelaws may also be subject to a Fixed Penalty Notice of up to £80. 

Parking enforcement. You will only be allowed to park in the designated car parks, not on other areas such as grass or access roads. Parking in designated car parks remains free of charge. Parking elsewhere in the park may result in a Parking Charge Notice of £100.

Why introduce an enforcement trial?

In the Summer of 2017, Beddington Park faced a number of problems with regards to the use of the park. Large numbers of cars were parking in undesignated areas, which often caused blockages. Groups of people arrived with large gas barbecues or made fires on the ground. There were also issues with excessive noise from certain groups, and anti-social behaviour.

In order to ensure that Beddington Park remains open and accessible to all members of the community, it was decided by Beddington & Wallington Local Committee to introduce an enforcement trial during 2018. A trial rather than permanent contract was proposed to test whether or not the solution will be effective and affordable.
