Quad Bikes are NOT PERMITTED to be used on the Old Recreation Ground. This is public land and it is illegal to use such vehicles. Details have been passed on to Operation Endurance. If residents could also report incidents directly to 101, the postcode is DH7 9TE or use what3words,
Park Drive Entrance : importing.swatting.firm
Bridgeway Entrance : pits.powers.duties
Work will take place to address the access points on to the site, retaining pedestrian access, pushchair / pram and wheelchair. Final design and installation dates are to be confirmed.
Work will take place to tackle two areas that have been identified as hotspots for antisocial behaviour. In addition work will be carried out on the bottom entrance. We have already spoken to Fields in Trust and as we are the landowners these works fall under maintenance.
- Sycamore x2 by gate entrance – crown lift to 3m
- Fell mixed shrubs as close to ground level as practical
- Fell as close to ground level all mixed shrubs and self-sown trees as close to ground level 3-4m either side of the steps
The above works have the support of the County Councillors and Durham Police.
