Two large mounds of rubble have been dumped in the car park at Gobions Open Space without permission.

According to North Mymms Parish Council (NMPC), which owns the land, the material was deposited by North Mymms Angling Club who intend to use it to “replace the pathways around the fishing lake and renew the fishing lake swims”.

NMPC apologises for any inconvenience caused by the presence of the material. The council told this site that the local authority was made aware of the material only after it had been dumped, and confirmed that permission had not been requested from NMPC.

Safety warnings demanded by parish council


It’s understood the materials will be there for up to two weeks, making parking difficult over the usually busy Easter weekend.

A spokesperson for NMPC has contacted the chair of the fishing club.
“We’ve explained that the car park gets very busy especially with it being the Easter holidays and that this is not acceptable.” 
The parish council has requested that the angling club also considers the safety issues and takes action.
“We have asked as a matter of urgency that the area is safely fenced off with warning signs attached, a proper safe pathway is made to access the play area directly from the car park and that the materials are removed as soon as possible”.
