Coleman Crescent Recreation Area has had problems with anti-social behaviour. This has been discussed at Northwood Police and Communities Together (PACT) meetings. Our local police and police community support officers have increased their patrols.
I have been campaigning with fellow Northwood councillor Liz Green to get greater investment so that children have better play facilities.
At a meeting with local residents in November 2008 people complained about how Thanet Council was neglecting the Rec. Whitehall Residents started a petition.
This has been covered in Your Thanet in January and February 2009. Local residents want an area where children can play safely.
I continue to talk to residents about potential plans for a community centre, housing and a MUGA (Multi Use Games Area).
There is more coverage of this on my blog.
