A Council proposal, that part of the Chesney Field amenity area should be fenced off, was criticised at a meeting of the Foxwood Residents Association last night.
Of those attending the meeting, only Council officials spoke in favour of the plan.
Now a formal representation has been made to local Councillors in the hope that the scheme can be quickly dismissed as an option.
This would allow other aspects of the project to move forward. These may include the provision of a trim track or “outdoor gym”.
Residents urged the football club that wants to erect the fencing and a storage container, to look to an arrangement with the Acorn Ruby Club who operate on an adjacent, and secure, site already.
The matter is likely to be discussed again at a Ward Committee meeting which is taking place next Tuesday at the Bowling Club (7:00pm)
