The shouting and screaming is so disturbing and I get no peace in my flat (that overlooks this area) when I take a day off work.As I have posted before I, as well as many other locals, are not happy about the closure of Lant Street. As I live in the flats overlooking the street I have noticed that the closed public thoroughfare of Lant street is now becoming a private car park for people who have got access to the locked gates at either end. I have also noticed that a large piece of waste ground which already belonged to the school (probably bigger in surface area to the whole of the closed street) lies completely wasted and is just a tip for rubbish and more cars. This could have easily have been grassed over and used as a playground. How can the school justify robbing the community of an important and historic street when it uses the space in this way!

While all this happens, we have the space! Early Years have been charging up and down on bikes and trikes, Yr 5/6 have had hockey practice there. Now the weather is drier, we shall be using the space for outdoor P.E. as appropriate, with all classes.
Children. Bells. I guess birds will be next on the list bringing havoc to peoples lives.
