Improved security at Deansgate Lane park

Formby councillors have been asked to agree funding for improved security at Deansgate Lane park following a recent travellers encampment.

Around 20 caravans moved onto the site on July 4. The groups left six days later.

Residents contacted Cllr Nina Killen who was able to liaise with council officers regarding the eviction process, and feed back to residents.

After the travellers vacated the site, Cllr Killen met with council officers to discuss improved security to deter future encampments.

She is also met with residents to discuss their concerns.

Following discussion with council officers, the following security improvements were proposed:

  • Height restrictors on both entrances to stop caravans

  • Speed Bumps on both entrances

  • New heavy duty locks on both gates

  • Sefton ARC to open and close at weekends during the football season.

  • 1/1/2 Metre high fence to be installed; opening for a car width only.

  • 1 1/2 metre high fence next to drop down bollards or behind wooden posts.

Ravenmeols councillors have been asked to approve the funding, which comes to around £5,000, using “S106 money”, which is taken from developers to make improvements to the community.

Cllr Killen said: “Thank you to the council officers for meeting with me to discuss improved security arrangements at Deansgate Lane playing fields. I hope these can be installed quickly. I would urge any residents who have concerns about travellers emcampments in Sefton to contact me. I very much hope that Sefton can pursue official transient sites with proper facilities where travellers can stay.”
