A large number of wooden bollards along the perimeter of Sebert St Rec’ are missing or rotten. They were put in to stop cars being parked on the Rec’ a problem that was evident on match days.
On making a request for new bollards, Liberal Democrat Cllr. Jeremy Hilton was told that the city council policy had changed and that the bollards would not be replaced.
Jeremy Hilton said: “I have written back to the council and demanded that the bollards are replaced to ensure the safety of children playing on the Rec’ and to make sure rugby fans don’t use the area as a car park.
I understand that the council is costing the replacement of the bollards. I am now waiting for a reply. I shall not be content until the bollards are replaced.”
