South Kesteven District Council considers Chinese lanterns and balloons ban
A ban on the release of Chinese lanterns and balloons from council-owned land across South Kesteven is being considered by officials.
Officers for South Kesteven District Council report that though such events have become a popular fundraiser for charities, it comes at a cost to the environment.
The move follows Belvoir Castle cancelling a lantern release last year after an outcry from locals.
