Willow Brook Centre manager to address community meeting

SSCG Meeting PosterScott Lahive, manager of the Willow Brook Centre, is set to address a meeting of Bradley Stoke’s Safer & Stronger Community Group this Tuesday evening.

Local residents are expected to quiz Mr Lahive about parking facilities at the new town centre site following a flood of negative comments in the Bradley Stoke Examiner’s forums.

Also due to attend the meeting is  Jim Daniels of South Gloucestershire Council’s Highways and Transportation department, who will address “parking issues” in the town. It is thought that the police crackdown on inconsiderate parking around Meadowbrook Primary School will feature in Mr Daniels’ contribution.

There will also be the opportunity to see and comment on the latest plans for a new play park at the Jubilee Green in Savages Wood Road. The so-called “Beacon Playground” is being funded via a grant from the Big Lottery Fund and could be open as early as Easter next year, according to information disclosed at a recent Bradley Stoke Town Council (BSTC) meeting.

Anti-social behaviour associated with the Manor Farm Crescent pedestrian access route into the Willow Brook Centre, agreed as a priority issue at the last SSCG meeting in September,  is also likely to be discussed at the meeting. Local residents have reacted angrily to BSTC’s recent decision to postpone for six months any action on potential closure of the access point.

The SSCG meeting takes place at 7pm on Tuesday (9th December) at Brook Way Community Centre.
