Local residents are concerned about Griftpark safety; Politics wants clarification


Various council parties have asked the council for measures to reduce the nuisance in the Griftpark. The PvdA, CDA, PvdD and VVD visited the Northeast district last week and spoke to several residents there who are concerned about the quality of life and safety in and around the Griftpark.

The parties want to know, among other things, whether more is being enforced now that the Griftpark is used more intensively due to the corona measures. For example, there is a lot of litter, such as broken beer bottles and drug waste.

According to the parties, parents indicated that they no longer let their children play in the park. The council asks the council for sustainable solutions that improve social safety in the area.

Litter and noise pollution

Not only litter causes problems. Residents have been bothered by drug dealers in the park and parking lots, and several runners were harassed in the park last year. People have also been robbed. The parties want to know whether the Commission has already taken measures and whether additional measures are necessary.

In addition to deterioration, there is noise pollution. According to the parties, parties are sometimes held in the park until 6 a.m. Now that bars in the city have to close earlier due to the corona measures, the parties are also afraid that the guests in the Griftpark will continue to drink. This is often accompanied by noise pollution. They therefore ask the Commission to what extent it is possible to no longer allow alcohol consumption after a certain time.

Inadequate supervision

Residents also believe that there is insufficient supervision by the police and enforcement. She and youth work say there is not enough capacity at the youth work organization (YOU). The council would therefore like the council to see whether the number of hours and the facilities of YOU in the Griftpark can be expanded.

Other measures that the parties would like to see include house rules signs at the beginning of the park, discouraging cyclists and scooter riders from riding on the footpaths, and markings in the grass and on walkways so that corona measures can be better enforced.
