Bollards or Gates for Dunnyshop/Clarence

On Friday 11th September 2009 our child was knocked down, whilst playing in the back alleyway of Dunnyshop Avenue and Clarence Road, Accrington. This is a petition to Hyndburn Borough Council to plead with them that either bollards or a gate be erected to restrict the entrance of unautorised users and those not aware of children playing in the immediate area. Our child was VERY LUCKY not to have been seriously harmed in this instance or maybe even worse! The area of Accrington where this happened has two pre nursery schoools, two Primary schools and a High school all within five minutes walking distance. The area is primarily dominated by families with young children who use these back alleyways to play on a daily basis. The back alleyway in question is only 2.6 metres wide and not suitable for the volume of traffic and in recent times the volume has increased. We have started a written petition in the local area and it has been doing well but the more people aware of this situation, the greater our chances are of something being done by the local council. May we thank everyone in advance for looking at or if you feel the urgency for signing this petition. Shane and Lucy Dobson
