Basildon Council has installed new barriers at Radford Crescent Car Park in Billericay, in order to restrict out-of-hours access and reduce anti-social behaviour in the area. The new barriers will be in use from Saturday 17 August.
While the barriers will restrict access to the car park outside of normal operating hours, they will not affect access for season ticket holders and pay and display customers using the car park during the day. The new entrance barrier will close when the car park closes, however customers will still be able to exit the car park.
Installation of the barriers was agreed at a meeting of the Neighbourhood and Public Spaces Committee on Wednesday 3 July.
“The new barriers are a welcome addition to Radford Crescent Car Park,” said Cllr David Harrison, Chairman of the Neighbourhoods and Public Spaces Committee. “They will provide additional security out-of-hours and reduce the likelihood that the car park is used for anti-social behaviour. I am pleased that we have been able to improve the car park for residents of the area without impacting those who use the car park correctly during the day.”
Opening hours and pricing information for all Basildon Council car parks is available on our website.
