Sudbury Liberal Democrat Councillor Paul Lorber has demanded council action to replace railings around Maybank Open Space in Sudbury which used to provide protection to the local sports pitches.
Part of the railings were removed recently during unblocking a drain but were never replaced by the contractors. They were simply left on the side and have since been stolen leaving the Open Space and the sports pitches unprotected. As a result cars have been driven over the open space as evidenced by tracks across the grass.
Cllr Lorber said:
This is really shoddy work by the drainage contractors and very poor supervision from Brent Council which is now costing local taxpayers more than it should have done.
The railings must be replaced without delay and Labour Councillor James Powney responsible for the environment department needs to provide an explanation of what went wrong and an apology.
