Plans for the fencing at Waymills Industrial Estate in Whitchurch have been given the go-ahead by Shropshire Council. Mr F Worsencroft applied for the fencing because of problems with cars driving around his car park at night. Gary Chesters, writing on behalf of Mr Worsencroft, said: “The reason for the application is to prevent joy riders and trespassers from using the car park in a reckless manner.
“The applicant is having problems with cars driving around his car park at night.
“The applicant has several concerns about this including damage to the car park, liability if anyone gets injured and the time consuming effort it involves for both the landowner and police when damage occurs.
“The applicant’s insurance company also have concerns.
“The applicant owns the adjoining site which does have a security fence and there are no issues .
The new fencing will match the existing fence.”
The security fencing will be put up across the front and a small section at the rear of units 4 and 5.
The front section will be gated and it will be similar to the neighbouring set of units.
Shropshire Council case officer Luke Ashley said: “The proposed scale, design and appearance of the fencing will respect the existing character of the area and will not result in harm in regards to its visual impact or cause any detrimental impact on neighbouring properties.”

Security at Celtic Park is being increased as Scotland s major venues continue to take action as the terror threat level in the UK remains at severe . The move to step up security at the stadium comes less than 24 hours after it emerged that roads around Ibrox Stadium in Govan, home of Rangers FC, would be closed by police in reponse to the threat level1. A statement from police posted on Rangers website said: You will have noticed at recent matches at Ibrox Stadium that roads around the perimeter of the stadium have been closed prior to and at the conclusion of the match. Taking into account the current UK Threat Level and to ensure the safety of all spectators this new arrangement will continue until further notice.
The road closures will be lifted as soon as the Safety Officer and Match Commander are satisfied that the spectators are safely away from the stadium. Police Scotland is believed to be acting on the advice of counter-terrorism experts, with officers seeking to enhance safety and provide public reassurance at a number of locations. Chief superintendent Sharon Milton added: Measures – including those to deter vehicle attacks – will be in place at all Rangers and Celtic home games for the foreseeable future.
This is not unique to one specific geographical area or policing division, and considerations apply for events across Scotland. Additional safety measures have been brought in for roads around Bellahouston Park, where US rapper Eminem is due to perform this evening.
