Work is currently at a very advanced stage to build boundary walls at Glen Oaks in Glenconnor, Clonmel.
The boundary walls, which are being built at the end of two cul-de-sacs in the estate, will effectively close off the estate from the adjoining open fields.
“The residents of Glen Oaks and surrounding areas were very concerned about anti-social behaviour and the potential risk of increasing and persistent trouble”, said Cllr. Joe Leahy.
He said the fields were used regularly by youths for motorbike scrambling and other anti-social activities and were easily accessed via Glen Oaks, encouraging many youths from other areas to meet and gather near the cul-de-sacs in the quiet, residential estate.
“I am delighted to see that this work is now nearing completion and would like to thank the Borough Council for their speedy response to the issue”, he added.
