Spring Bridge Road Car Park Survey

The Council is currently considering closing Springbridge Rd Car Park overnight, as one of a number of measures to tackle antisocial behaviour at the site. Despite employing a security firm, working closely with Homelessness Charities through Streetlink, and increasing staff presence in recent years, the car park is still troubled by drug use, excessive noise, public urination and rough sleeping on a regular basis, particularly after officers finish in the evenings.

The Council is soon to commence redecoration of parts of the car park including the staircases where rough sleeping is a particular issue and is taking further steps to tackle these problems before doing so. The Council would like feedback on these proposals so they can minimise any possible negative impact an overnight closure may have on visitors and local businesses.
