Security fencing plan to protect Hartlepool allotment

Security fencing plan to protect Hartlepool allotment
Metal security fencing will replace an existing wooden fence panels at an allotment site in Hartlepool if the plans are given the go-ahead.

According to the Hartlepool Mail, the allotment, at Chester Road, has been plagued by intruders, fly-tipping and anti-social behaviour. Its wooden fence is damaged.

A new proposal recommends replacing the wooden panels with metal or mesh security fencing.

The newspaper quoted part of a report by Brian Neale, Hartlepool Borough Council's crime and disorder manager, as saying: "The allotments have suffered, over a number of years, from a high occurrence of break-ins, regular fly-tipping and cable burning, vandalism and the use of disused sheds and buildings for anti-social behaviour."

There are concerns plot-holders are giving up their spaces because of the problems.

The project, which will cost £37,000 if it goes ahead, will be formally considered in the new year.

Recently, new metal gates were fitted at a Stoke-on-Trent allotment after vandals broke in and damaged equipment.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800319570-ADNFCR
