Changes made to Wellington Parade rose garden

Jremy Hilton at Rose Garden

The rose garden at the corner of London Road and Great Western Road has seen some changes, as the city council carried out improvements to discourage anti social behaviour at this public space.
The brick wall at the back of the garden and the planter have been removed to stop street drinkers from sitting there. The boundary wall has also had some work done to it.
The work has been partially funded from a devolved budget that requires the approval of ward councillors, before the money can be spent.
Jeremy Hilton said: “The removal of the brick wall takes away a place for street drinkers to sit.
“There is still work to do to improve the garden, but we have made a start. I was more than happy to approve the work.”
Sebastian Field said: “This is an important open space along London Road.
“The drinking of alcohol is not allowed. I hope the changes being made, will reduce incidents of anti social behaviour.”
