Minding my own business, cycling down Northdown Road, I noticed a big gap, which previously had been boarded up, as some of you will recall, from the big fire, back in May 2009.
Closer inspection shows, what I feel most, would agree, a poor attempt to fence the site off, having rung the council, I understand that they are on the case as it were, but I understand that the owners of the site, are a bit reluctant to secure the site properly.
I feel that given the ease, with which you could push aside the fencing (not that it appears secure), there is a real danger of a child, teenager or passing drunk could find themselves falling 3 metres or more.
It looks to me as if the owners, are not taking reasonable steps to secure the site. I appreciate that the council are chasing up the owner to get them take responsibility.
Still if you own the site, please feel free to explain the methodology of having a few plastic barriers as a means of securing the site.
I shall email my local representatives and get them on the case.
