Enfield Council should drop its blanket plan to leave parks unlocked at night
Enfield Council is planning to withdraw all nightlocking from 22 parks in the borough. Ifimplemented,the pedestrian gates of those parks that have always been locked would be left open all night.
This decision has caused alarm amongst local Friends of Parks groups and concern to residents, especially those with homes that back on to parks, who fear they will be exposed to intruders at night.
We the undersigned urge Enfield Council to think again, give proper regard to the safety ofpersons and valuable community assets, and drop the blanket proposal to stop locking its parks at night.
