I think it was on the last page that had a link to the Department for Communities and Local Government pdf about open spaces so will call them again and get a email addy for them and take that route,can see this being a slog although if they do not have a bylaw in place what happens if a ranger pulls you whilst at great risk to yourself and others whilst you are detecting!

re wigan council:
when i asked, one person said yes and another said no. so i did a freedom of information ...thing... and the legal department replied eventually. they said that wigan council has NO specific policy in place regarding the use of metal detectors on council land, but then said, so i will say it's not allowed.

Bury St Edmunds have three parks you can detect on. Needs an annual (paid-for) licence though.

Isn't it amazing, despite the fact I asked the same question of Wigan Council in 2014 their response was exactly the same? So when they say they will be reviewing the lack of a policy "soon" you really do have to wonder what their understand of the word "soon" is.

I have compiled and submitted a public question, direct to Wigan Council Cabinet Committee and await a response within their promised 10 day deadline.
