Save £200,000 by not closing park gates
and abandoning security patrols
and this may be the result. Lesnes Abbey recreation ground’s principal structure was burned out this evening.
As councillors Seán Newman and Stefano Borella (Labour) said when councillor Gareth Bacon cancelled the Ward Security contract, the costs will be transferred to the emergency services, but they weren’t entirely correct. The taxpayer will not only pay those expenses but pick up the equipment replacement costs too.
Danson Park was burned out too in January.
