Parks and open spaces

If you intend to fly a drone in our parks and open spaces, please read the guidance issued by the Civil Aviation Authority on the safety rules that apply when flying drones.

It is not permitted to fly drones at Hinchingbrooke Country Park or Paxton Pits Nature Reserve.

If you fail to follow this guidance in any way, we reserve the right to ask you to stop using your drone. We are particularly concerned about the disturbance they cause to other visitors, to wildlife and the potential safety issues if one should go out of control.

Nature reserves and sites of special scientific interest (SSSIs)

Using a drone on nature reserves and SSSIs without permission from Natural England can be an offence as it may cause disturbance during the nesting season for birds. Paxton Pits Nature Reserve is an SSSI.
