In the Summer of 2017, Beddington Park faced a number of problems with regards to the use of the park. Large numbers of cars were parking in undesignated areas, which often caused blockages. Groups of people arrived with large gas barbecues or made fires on the ground. There were also issues with excessive noise from certain groups, and anti-social behaviour.

In order to ensure that Beddington Park remains open and accessible to all members of the community, it was decided by Beddington & Wallington Local Committee to introduce an enforcement trial during 2018. A trial rather than permanent contract was proposed to test whether or not the solution will be effective and affordable.

In October 2017, the Beddington and Wallington Local Committee agreed a 6 month trial in response to an increase in antisocial behaviour in the park including the use of disposable and gas powered BBQs, a concentration of large groups using the park and BBQ area with sound systems and gazebos, and inappropriate and unmanaged car parking.  The trial included;

  • engaging with a third party and delegating powers for enforcement in Beddington Park

  • the implementation of a permit/charging system for the static BBQs

  • the introduction of a private parking enforcement solution for the roads within the park

  • the enforcement of environmental crime experienced within Beddington Park including disposable littering, dog fouling, BBQs and noise
