Election over – now back to those issues

The Lostock neighbourhood is suffering a resurgance of youth nuisance. Partly it’s as a consequence of the hot weather, partly it’s due to design faults in the new development that we were well aware of before it was built, partly it’s due to an inability to fix gates. Whatever the reason, it’s taking extra police resources and causing stress to residents. The issue is being raised at neighbourhood groups and on the street. Most of the time the kids are doing nothing more than play football but the new build has provided places that are just inappropriate.
