The Council are aware of recent reports of anti-social behaviour in the park and have been working with the police and our Borough Council to look at how to address this.
The police do have the area on their radar as a hot spot for patrolling but have stressed that receiving incident reports at the time will drive up the need for resources to be directed to Collinson Park, without such reporting by witnesses to the incident - police resources will undoubtedly be directed elsewhere. CCTV footage is monitored but the Council need a time frame and date to view footage which can be followed up by the police, provided the incident has been logged.
Rest assured that very little tax payers' money has been incurred so far and our Borough Council have agreed to replace any damaged bins. We have regular litter pickers in the area and any clean up required is dealt with as soon as practical.
