A group of local businesses have joined forces with a local authority in order to prevent unwanted access on a piece of land that’s been targeted by travellers in the past, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.
Castle Point Council and owners of the Leisure Island Fun Park have joined together to put in 280 concrete bollards around the field next to Labworth car park, on Canvey, to stop travellers parking on the field.
Height barriers have also been installed at the entrance to the car park, and another at the entrance to the field, allowing only cars through.
Scott Petty, manager at Leisure Island Fun Park, said: “The only trouble we’ve ever had was the travellers last year, but they can’t get on to the field now.
“By protecting the Labworth, we’re protecting the island.”
The Static Bollards supplied by Carpark Barriers Gates & Turnstiles are equally suitable for both ground or surface mount, are highly flexible in most situations and are available in both cast iron and wood versions, which means that customer will be able to choose either strength or cosmetic appearance, depending on the specific circumstances within which the bollard is set to be mounted.
From simple light weight timber bollards for demarcation purposes, separating pedestrians from traffic or for protecting vulnerable points like corners of buildings that could be accidentally hit by vehicles, static bollards are highly versatile and provide a genuine deterrent.
The reliable and affordable Static Bollards from Carpark Barriers Gates & Turnstiles are available in any RAL colour as a special order at low prices, and if you’d like to find out more about them (or have any other query on this topic), then our dedicated product team can answer any question you might have.
