It seems that since the barrier has been installed, the youths are congregating around the changing rooms more than ever. Not sure if this is just coincidence with schools/colleges breaking up or whether the two things are linked.

It is a difficult issue as the youngsters need somewhere to socialise with their friends, but unfortunately, this gets out of hand with shouting, bad language, music being played late at night and certainly some evidence of drug taking.

I feel that those involved in the main do actually know right from wrong and when they are doing wrong, they will attempt to hide around the changing room area. I think that the key to helping resolve the issues is to get the local residents on board as it is in all of our interests to have a place that everyone can enjoy without fear of intimidation and nuisance from criminal activities. One thing that I feel would help is to ask council contractors to trim back well the shrubbery to the front of the park and the rear of the houses on the Neville Street side of the park.

With better sight of things, the local residents are more able to keep an eye on the park to make sure it is safe and enjoyable for all.

We were all young once (in some cases a distant memory!) and we probably all tested the ‘limits’ of how far we could go in different situations, so far from spoiling anyones fun and enjoyment, I think that carrying out this simple improvement may perhaps help. I can’t see it doing any harm.

What do others think?

Just as a side note, contractors fitted the parking restriction signs on Neville Street today, I appreciate that they may not have finished yet, but one sign is completely obscured by overgrown bushes!! Hopefully, someone will come out to rectify this, otherwise there will be many an appeal for anyone ticketed as the sign is completely obscured by foliage.
