Good News for Hodson Close!

After a bit of a struggle to find resources, some very good news for our  community.

I  can now confirm that a barrier and new pole fence has been erected to the public footpath, and across the adjacent land, in order to prevent misuse of the pedestrian access.  Hopefully, this will now prevent people accessing Hodson  Close at speed, addressing the issues raised by both residents and the local Police.

Previous to today, The pedestrian footway in Hodson Close leading to Griffith Drive,  has been a source of concern for some residents of Hodson Close (living in the new bungalows).Where they have reported the footpath being used by cycles and motor scooters and there is even a report of a car! All racing along this pedestrian footway regularly.

This new barrier will I hope create a safer environment for everyone…. I am pleased to have helped in this matter.hodson close pedestrian access
