WWW – Noise from Fun Fair on Redhill Common :
We do decibel check and the funfair is remaining within the limits however this year they have been making tannoy announcements which they are not permitted to do.BCP Council have stressed this to William Cole& Son , since which we have not received any further noise complaints.
- In an effort to shield the residential roads opposite, the funfair placed their trucks along one side to create a sound barrier which seems to have worked but has left the opposing side open for the first time and this seems to where the majority of noise complaints have stemmed from. We can discuss with W.Cole & Son for next time repositioning to contain the noise as much as possible.
- W.Cole & Son are responsible for litter collection inside the event area (so inside the fenced area) which they do take seriously, bringing in their own bins and keeping things tidy.
TRAVELLERS INCURSION AT SLADES PARK :Friday 20th May 2022 – only lasting hours…….Bournemouth North Policing Team took swift action ( Inspectors Nick Lee and Scott Janes ) and ‘paperwork’ was ready within hours and the Travellers “were advised” NOT to ‘unpack’ as they would be “off” first thing in the morning.
They left that evening.
( At Rossmore , their next ‘stop’ , Police had vans AND TOW TRUCKS to produce the same result. Section 61 in action. Chief Constable and Police and Crimes Commissioner making it “A safer Dorset for you”. )
Ward Councillors’ thanks for the prompt action at Slades Park
According to the Highway Code :
“Nearest You Can Park to a Junction”“Parking near junctions (Rule 243) being one piece of advice stating:
‘DO NOT stop or park opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space’.Although there’s not a law that specifically prohibits motorists from parking close to a junction, you may still find your vehicle ticketed on your return. A non-endorsable (no penalty points added to your driving licence) Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) under the offence of unnecessary obstruction will see you fined £50, or up to £100 for more serious circumstances.”RESIDENTS living in roads congested by pavement parking say enough is enough amid fears “someone will get hurt” due to obstructions and visibility issues.
BCP Council has pleaded with drivers to park considerately and say they would welcome government suggestions to grant local authorities more power to tackle pavement parking, which some residents say is getting worse in the region.

BCP COUNCIL - Subject: Weeding on Paths
BCP Council are in the middle of our weeding programme, the attached map shows what has been done (green) and what is to be done (Red) It will take a while for treated weeds to die back but hopefully useful for you when weed queries come in. There will be another round later in the year.
UPDATE* - please note, that from the 8th August 2022 to the 28th August 2022, the closure of Gorsecliff Road, from its junction with Boundary Road to its junction with Beswick Avenue, has been added to the programme of works. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
