Councillor Ben Miskell has today called for action to remove a lockdown busting ‘party den’ that’s been the scene of weekend and late-night parties at the back of a residential street in Arbourthorne.
The structure, which is located next to Villers Close in Buck Wood, has been the source of complaints from residents, with reports of large crowds gathering in contravention of current lockdown restrictions.
Councillor Ben Miskell said: ‘Many residents have been in touch with me after making countless reports to South Yorkshire Police about anti-social behaviour connected to this shelter, with loud music causing sleepless nights and significant distress. It’s also been the source of a huge upturn in illegal motorbike use in the wood and litter’.
He went on to say: ‘The people responsible are adults and should know better. It’s clearly been put up in a bid to break lockdown rules. At the moment, it’s not the time or place to party. I want to see this shelter removed, as it’s a source of anti-social behaviour in the neighbourhood’.
