promises action after safety fears raised over Apex Park
paths at Highbridge's Apex Park are set to be repaired, Sedgemoor
District Council has promised this week after safety concerns
were raised by walkers.
users of the park have expressed concern about the poor condition
of lake-side paths around the water which has been worsened by
regular walker, who asked not to be named, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"The condition of the path around the lake is atrocious.
For users of wheelchairs and mobility scooters it is actually
dangerous and the council urgently needs to make some repairs."
District Council spokeswoman Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"The paths have been inspected by our health and safety team
and, whilst they are obviously in need of repair, there is no
immediate danger. Our
staff check them regularly to make sure that there is no deterioration."
added that the council is in discussions with contractors to assess
what needs to be done to repair them. Work to improve the paths
is expected later this year.
