Are you looking at the future of the changing rooms at the Green Lane car park? I haven't seen them used for a long time now and they must be costing the council money to maintain. Earlier this year I reported some damage to the roof of the building after a storm and this was subsequently repaired, but must have cost a fair amount as roof repairs are not cheap. Perhaps the building would be best demolished to remove the on-going cost burden on the council?

I live very close to this car park and I was completely unaware of a drug problem. I have seen young adults in the area, particularly during the summer months, and they seemed to be just congregating with friends but I have never been aware of any trouble. They could be more considerate with litter, but the people parking in the car park do not set a good example to the younger generation.

It would be a shame to lose this parking area as it gets used throughout the football season by the various football teams that use the playing fields at weekends.

If there is a problem with drug taking and anti-social behaviour, this is a job for the Police. Pressure needs to be applied to GMP - they will only listen to those that shout the loudest and are tenacious in their approach. The council can assist by perhaps improving the lighting and possibly adding CCTV (if this is a council responsibility).

If there is a barrier to restrict parking at certain times, this comes with it's own set of problems such as who is responsible for opening/closing. If it is an electrically operated system, this again adds future cost for maintenance and servicing. If a pay and display is an option, the removal of the changing rooms and an extension to the parking area, may help to make a better business case to maximise revenues.

Good luck sorting it all out, I must admit I was surprised to learn of the drug problem on my doorstep!
