Lyndon Councillors Ade Adeyemo and Kathryn Thomas have taken action in Lyndon to protect Hobs Meadow from unauthorised vehicle access.
At the end of July Councillors Ade Adeyemo and Kathryn Thomas were made aware of sudden unauthorised vehicle access on Hobs Meadow by residents. The Police and Council were notified immediately and Cllrs worked hard through the night liaising with authorities on the issue to ensure that action was taken.
The next day Cllrs had discussions with Council officers regarding securing the site to prevent this from happening again and officers agreed to undertake a security review of the site with the view to installing defences.
On the Friday this was confirmed and authorised by the Cabinet member and by the following Monday mounds were dug to prevent further unauthorised vehicle access. These mounds will be later seeded with wildflowers.
Cllr Adeyemo said, "Like many local residents, Kathryn and I also had questions as to why Hobs Meadow wasn’t protected like many of the other local parks. We are pleased to see these new measures and thank council officers for getting the work completed so quickly”.
