Focus On Park Problems At Winyates PACT In Redditch
Noise and anti social behaviour at Rocket Park were among the issues raised as priorities for action at the latest meeting of Winyates PACT (Partners And Communities Together) In Redditch.
A meeting was held at the park in Lowlands Lane on Wednesday last week (8 August) which was attended by district and county councillors. Concerns raised by residents related to overgrown bushes and trees at the back of the park; noise from skate ramps there; and anti social behaviour in the evenings involving large groups of youths gathering there and drinking while under-age.
Community Support Officer Jon Duggins said that police would be monitoring the park during the evenings to deal with anti social behaviour and a site meeting would be held on Friday (17 August) with council officers to consider the other problems highlighted.
CSO Duggins said that the PACT meeting was updated on last month's priority concerning speeding in Farmore Lane. The council was considering speed data which had been collated and checks had been carried out by the Local Policing Team resulting in several motorists being advised about the manner in which they were driving.
The next Winyates PACT meeting will be held on Wednesday, 12 September, at 7pm in the Winyates Barn Community Centre.
