CEC refuse to make the Queens Park Safe

Despite all the evidence the council still refuses to make the park safe they claim they inspected the park in October If they did they must be blind as the dead branch's were reported to the park manager and ANSA  and was in the Chronicle and still today nothing has been done. They claim dead wood help biodiversity which is fine if its in a wood that no one visits but in a public park its deadly.  I was the head gardener at Bostock hall which is a bigger site than the park with woods and lake and even a small dead branch falling from 20ft can kill or maim.

The only conclusion one can come to is the Council doesn't care if the public gets killed or injured when presented with photographic evidence there can be no doubt there is a high risk  of injury or death it like the London fire were no one took any action until its to late. With this evidence if any one is hurt they can take the evidence to court when they sue and prove that CEC failed in its duty of care and their obligations under Health and Safety.

End of Year review


The year started with the CEC working near badger without a licence which saw the job stopped by the Police. They then claimed they had put cameras down and proved the badgers had gone.

But our expert who came from Surrey to survey who had 30 years experience with badgers said that were still there.

Work went head as a result of the camera evidence but after 12 months of CEC refusing a FOI act request the ICO has got the reports.

Please see the following response issued to the ICO in respect of video footage:

•             Confirmation of whether the council holds any video footage in relation to this request. 

As the surveys have indicated, motion sensor cameras were erected to film the setts. The cameras were not activated. Therefore, Cheshire East Council does not hold any video footage in relation to this request.

I trust that this clarifies this point in respect of the video footage.

Kind regards.

Mrs H M Sweeney,

Senior Compliance & Customer Relations Officer,

Compliance & Customer Relations Team.

The strange thing is if there were cameras why didnt our expert see them and why didnt they capture her or other badger members?

Deadly Trees

Deadly trees were reported in February and despite many more reports and an article in the local paper no attempt has been made to make over 100 branch's safe the leader of the council Cllr Bailey refuses to even reply to complaints. I have presented photo evidence of branch's that have fallen which would kill if anyone was under it



The café which isn't that old is falling to bit and the veranda is having to be replaced

December and snow fills the park
