Security fencing helps community spirit

Security fencing helps community spirit
Security fencing will be part of a £355,000 improvement plan for a West Yorkshire estate.

According to the Huddersfield Daily Examiner, the Golcar area of Colne Valley will receive the funding, part of the Kirklees Council initiative called "Narrowing the Gap", which works to reduce inequality in communities.

A total of £5.5 million will be spent across areas of Golcar, Dewsbury, Batley and Dalton.

Alongside security fencing, boundary markings and parking will be improved, and work with local community groups will take place.

Crash barriers will also be introduced following use of quad and motor bikes.

"The scheme is about dealing with local issues and lifting the feel of the whole area. That area is one of the most deprived in the whole of the borough," Golcar councillor Andrew Marchington told the newspaper.

"But it's not just about the people in the estates, we've got issues around our young people, health and inequality," he added.

It is hoped that the consequences of the plan will make it "less likely" that vandalism and anti-social behaviour will be a problem, the councillor also told the newspaper.

Earlier this month, residents in Leeds welcomed the development of security fencing after incidents of burglary and yobbish behaviour.
