To enable Alexandra park to be closed to vehicles overnight but allow any cars left in the park to exit without the need for further assistance. This will be achieved using bollards, signage, speed ramps, line marking and one-way traffic flow plates which will allow vehicles to exit the park once it is locked but prohibit any new vehicles entering overnight.


To fully approve the capital scheme to the value of £25k, funded by borrowing.

Alternative options considered:

1.Install an automatic rising bollard or boom barrier with CCTV camera. This is more costly to install and maintain, less sustainable and more visually intrusive.

2. Do nothing – there are regular complaints of anti-social behaviour from local residents if the park road is left unlocked overnight. Approximately 50 out of hours call outs to the park per annum to release cars locked in the park.
