Byelaws are local laws which the Council can ask the secretary of state to enact. They can cover a variety of issues.
These documents date from 1896 onwards. They are scanned copies, and we apologise for any areas of poor legibility.
These byelaws pre-date the formation of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames Council in 1965.
These byelaws apply to the whole Borough.
Under the Good Rule and Government byelaws a local authority may prohibit cycling on footpaths not alongside roads. A sign must be clearly displayed.
The Council is responsible for commons and open spaces in the Borough, and for crematoria.
If you have any queries about the byelaws please email the Legal and Electoral Services Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
