Knee high fencing around green, play area and a along roads around Farm Piece

Reported via desktop in the Parks/landscapes category anonymously at 12:23, Fri 31 December 2021 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Vale of White Horse District Council less than a minute later

Issue has been reported a number of times over a period of at least 4 years. Matter now far worse and it seems that another section collapses each week. It is no longer a few pieces but the whole run of such fencing in this area. Looks terrible, allows car access to green and play area and is a danger to public, in particular children.

  • Hello Mr Glenday, I visited site this afternoon and can see the extent of the damage. As said previously, we will look to replace it in sections so will start with the highest priority areas first.

  • Many thanks for update dated 12/01/22 following site inspection. This is positive. I accept need to prioritize and replace sections in most need although others will not be far behind I'm sure. I really hope that the first task can be to remove all broken and beyond reuse sections - this will make place look much better even with gaps and enhance safety.

  • 12/02/22: Good to see a number of broken sections have been removed around the green making that part safer at least and actually looks a lot better, even with gaps. Hope job not complete as I count 13 other sections in Farm Piece alone broken and laying on the floor - see earlier photos. These are on other side of road from entry in to FP along to Number 19. Excellent start, hope we move on.

  • A pity that some good progress made in Jan/Feb has not been seen through. Rail / Fencing on side of road away from green (running numbers 1-19 Farm Piece) remain an eye sore and potential danger. Whole run needs taking away. Most frustrating is section repaired on park side of road. Three vans a one point yet old sections just left behind. Yes, taped off but it's been a couple of week now.

  • This work has been taken on by our Facilities Team. Unfortunately they have had some sickness issues in the team which have caused delays but they will start again as soon as possible.

  • All broken sections have been replaced which is really good news after all these years of reporting. A big thanks for work done. A couple of large gaps could allow vehicle access to green but all in all a very positive result.

    State changed to: Fixed
