Trial night time closure of Dane John Gardens gates

In response to concerns of late night anti-social behaviour in the Dane John Gardens, the council is conducting a trial night time closure between 10pm and 4am on Friday and Saturday nights at five of the eight entrances into the gardens:

  • Watling Street (1)
  • Adjacent to 7 Dane John (2)
  • Watling Street car park (3)
  • Opposite the junction of St Mary’s Street and Marlowe Avenue (4)
  • Adjacent to 16 Dane John (5)

This is a new trial, which will run until 17 December 2022. We are using Right Guard Security to lock and unlock the gates.
