Plymouth school in limbo over perimeter fence

Plymouth school in limbo over perimeter fence
A Plymouth school is deciding what action to take about a controversial footpath after receiving approval for security fencing around its premises.

Ridgeway School, in nearby Plympton, is unhappy with the footpath, known as Geasons Lane, that passes through its land, which has been noted for attracting anti-social behaviour and has been detrimental to improving safety.

The school's headmaster John Didymus wants the footpath to be closed off but is waiting for approval from the council.

He told the Plymouth Herald that while planning permission to erect the fence had been given the green light it would not be installed until a decision had been made over the footpath.

Mr Didymus told the newspaper: "My perspective as a headteacher is that it is unsafe to have people wandering through the site during school hours and after school."

The problem of anti-social behaviour is also rife in Stoke where the city council has told residents in Palmers Green that they will need to open and close a security gate themselves due to cutbacks in the authority's budget.
