Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
There has been an increase in reporting of motorcycles being ridden by youths on the park. Some of which are not wearing helmets. The motorcycles used are often stolen and are being ridden in a way that causes risk of injuries to law abiding members of the community that are using the park and also the riders.
