Update on the anti social behaviour in and around Ordsall Park and the theft and setting fire of wheelie bins
An action commitee has been formed to look at what further appropriate action can be taken to tackle this disappointing Anti Social Behaviour
Action has been taken in the last few months to try to tackle and curb this behaviour, this has included:
- Visiting residents properties close to the park to ask them not to put out their bins until bin collection day (Wednesday) and to bring them in/lock them away striaght after being emptied
- Temporary closure of the Hulton St/Hollies Lane park entrance (next to the children's playground). This has been done to stop wheelie bins been taken into the park via this entrance and set on fire
- Visits to local schools by the police and fire service to warn students that this behaviour and the setting of fires in the park is totally unacceptable
Further park entrances may be closed overnight
Ordsall Park Improvemements ongoing!!
- New entrance metalwork to be installed
- New bins to be installed
- Improved signage
