(four out of the five) benches in Petts Wood Recreation Ground (Eynsford Cl, Petts Wood BR5 1DP) have been removed

Reported via desktop in the Parks and Greenspace category anonymously at 10:06, Thursday 5 May 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Q10. Please give brief details of your complaint or compliment below I am very disappointed that over a period of recent months almost all (four out of the five) benches in Petts Wood Recreation Ground (Eynsford Cl, Petts Wood BR5 1DP) have been removed. I strongly believe there should be benches available for people to sit and enjoy the park and especially for elderly or disabled people too and it is affecting my personal enjoyment of the space. Q11. What action (if any) would you like us to take? As a tax payer, I strongly feel this is a basic thing which should be provided by the council. If the nice wooden benches which existed previously were damaged due to anti-social behaviour (?) then I would suggest you replace them with metal benches which cannot be destroyed by louts. Please confirm receipt of my complaint and I would appreciate a response ASAP.

  • Dear Bromley Council team

    I went for a walk this evening at Petts Wood Recreation Ground and whilst there are two new benches installed, there are still two missing in the places there used to be benches- see attached photos (one on the side and one at end of park). Please put in two new benches, in these positions as before and as originally requested.

    Best regards

    Esther Theodore
