Youths are “running riot” on the bowling pavilion roof in Steeton, it has been reported.

Resident Roy Finn attended a meeting of Steeton-with-Eastburn Parish Council and expressed his concerns about young people repeatedly climbing on the roof.

He told councillors: “There has been a lot of trouble with this. They are youths aged between five and 14 years old.

“It has been reported many times but nothing seems to be done about it.

“One of these days somebody is going to go through that roof.”

PCSO Lawrence Walton, who attended the meeting on behalf of the neighbourhood police team, said he did not know anything about the complaints but would look into them.

He said: “We need to be informed exactly when it is happening. We cannot be everywhere.

“At the moment we are having a lot of trouble with the kids hanging around Hothfield School, in Silsden.

“If you are walking past and there is a problem, then you have to let us know.”

Council chairman Councillor David Mullen said he had not been informed of the problem and so could not comment.

The council’s budget for 2009/10 has been finalised and the parish council precept for a Band D property has gone up by 36p. The owner of a Band D property will now have to pay £16.84, compared to £16.48 last year. Council chairman Cllr Mullen said: “We have been prudent.”

Designs for Eastburn playing fields may finally be completed in time for next month’s meeting, reported Cllr Karen Pickard.

The chairman of the Eastburn playing fields steering group met with park designer Bradford Community Environment Project to call for the plans to be completed after months of waiting. The project, to create new walkways and facilities in the playing fields, was originally meant to be completed during the summer.

Cllr Pickard said: “They are hoping to come back with a plan on January 29.

“I told them we did not want the plan to be done on a shoestring and that we would rather make it a good investment than be penny pinching.”

The council adopted the redevelopment of Eastburn playing fields as part if its parish plan.
