Feltham Park

Some things taken from recent visits.

1) Breach in Controlled Drinking Zone

I do report breaches when I see them and think I need to encourage others to do the same.  Here are some things seen yesterday (near Helen Avenue entrance):

2) Dumped trolley nearby

3) Near bench between park and Helen Avenue entrance

Lots of bottle tops and cigarettes:

4) Pond

It is looking very bad again.  Lets see if it will be improved after I report it?

5) Rear of Feltham Assembly Hall

Some tagging needs to be removed, plus a lick of paint would possibly be required?

Will take up each of the above today.

    Welcome back to your blog after a few month’s absence, Mark- some of us do miss your observations, both verbal and visual.
    As far as the CDZ infringements are concerned, though, these photos would seem to prove that people have been drinking in and around the park, but is it any surprise! All that re-introducing a dispersal zone to Feltham Town Centre has done is, once again, push problems which are often alcohol-fulled, to the edges of the zone, especially Feltham park. Catching and deterring “offenders”, of whatever age, is only going to improve with determined efforts and joined up thinking by all the agencies involved, but especially the Feltham North SNT (who are often conspicuous by their absence, particularly late at night, on this stretch of road).

    Much improved street lighting in the area of the park where the troublemakers hang out would also help, as would restrictions on the trading hours of the nearby off-licences- two! It’s not much good restricting the town centre supermarkets from selling alcohol when, it would appear, at least one of the convenience stores is open til gone 11 p.m. What hour their licence allows them to sell alcohol too I am not sure, but perhaps it needs investigating?

    Finally, and once again, the council needs to take a serious look, even in these cash-strapped times, at provision for youth locally. Some imaginative thinking and investment, not cuts, to youth services have been needed in Feltham for a very long time.

      I do not think that the displacement argument should apply here as Feltham Park is within the zone. Here is a link to the zone (see last page).
