This is a traditional, probably 30s, maybe post war, LT shelter. It has had the roof shingles replaced a number of years ago. The built-in bench has been replaced by a smaller park bench. Water…Continue

I was concerned to see 4 youths (guessing 15 - 17 year old young men) "playing" very violently with the swings at the green. They were throwing the seats hard until they wrapped right over the top.…Continue

Bus shelter at Pantile Bridge (junction of HH HighStreet/Uxbridge Road)

This is a traditional, probably 30s, maybe post war, LT shelter. It has had the roof shingles replaced a number of years ago. The built-in bench has been replaced by a smaller park bench. Water collects on the shelter's concrete base and is clearly rotting the structural timber.I worry that this building is being allowed to deteriorate to an extent that it will be removed entirely. That would be a shame as it adds to the local street scene and takes the eye away from the many ugly…See More

"Hi John - 15 to 17 year olds are children, not men. They probably got bored and went home. "

John orr replied to Gareth Roberts's discussion Hampton Ferry - ACTION NEEDED
"This is not just about the ferry. More it is about despoiling a large swathe of open land which can be enjoyed by all. Open vistas are important and buildings which spoil these ruin the pleasure walkers and cyclists enjoy. John Orr"

Hampton Green Playground - misuse/vandalism

I was concerned to see 4 youths (guessing 15 - 17 year old young men) "playing" very violently with the swings at the green. They were throwing the seats hard until they wrapped right over the top. There was plenty of noise as the metal parts crashed against the parts of the swings. All this was at least misuse but possibly vandalism. The swings were obviously not designed for this treatment.This all occurred on Friday evening at about 20.30 (11 May 2018).When I passed by about 15 minutes later…See More

John orr replied to Gareth Roberts's discussion Hampton Riviera / Hucks Boatyard
"Are there not numerous planning issues outstanding as well as this financial ruling. RUT Council planners rejected numerous plans, some of which were retrospective. Hasn't he ignore planning and so far got away with it? John"

"How is it known that this proposal has majority support of pool users. This is far from explicit. The support evident in public media sites (e.g. RUT planning site) shows support for improving and upgrading the current building. If you ask the…"
