Petition update from the council, 21 December 2017

Dear Ms Raza

I have received your petition of 26 signatures, in objection of extended access to the Tennis Courts at Paddington Recreation Ground from 7am during the summer months.

Having also received a counter petition against yours, we have had to consider the opposing views carefully, discussing it with our Cabinet Member for Environment, Sport & Community and our leisure operator Everyone Active.

Whilst creating opportunities for local residents to be active and lead healthy lives is a priority for Westminster City Council, we also have to consider any negative impact that extended use of facilities would have on local residents and have taken your concerns seriously.

With this in mind we will be conducting a small scale trial period on a limited number of courts during the summer 2018 of around 3 days per week when the Tennis courts can be used from 7am to minimise any distribution to local residents.

Following this trail period we will review uptake and any related issues before making future plans or extending access in the longer term.

I thank you for leading the petition.

Kind regards

Andy Durrant
Head of Sport, Leisure & Wellbeing

More details from petition creator

You may be aware of petition logged with the Council requesting that an earlier start time of 7.00am is allowed for tennis games at Paddington Recreation Ground over the summer periods.

We have therefore created a petition AGAINST an early start as this would cause considerable noise disturbance to the residents of Carlton Mansions and other adjoining properties next to Paddington Recreation Grounds.

We would therefore kindly ask that you sign this petition against the proposal of early starts for Tennis at Paddington Recreation Grounds.
