Awful derelict building in Southwood Park

On entering the upper entrance to Southwood Road Park you are greeted by a large drawing of an ejaculating penis. It's been there a year on the side of a derelict building which is starting to fall down. It's dangerous, it's unpleasant it's offensive. Is this really the best we can do? The park keeper must have seen the obscene graffiti hundreds of times when locking up, how is that OK?

  • The offensive graffiti has been painted over in a random colour. Canopy could still fall and kill someone. If there is no money to remove it at least put a protective security fence around the front canopy area.

  • The graffiti was painted over by the Council, but a new set was almost immediately added. This involves the scaling of a dangerously unsafe building.

  • This building is going to be here for the foreseeable future, so it needs to be made safe.

  • I suspect we will be stuck with it for the next decade. Not really helping with the mental health and well-being aspect of parks, but not likely to be a priority. Should still be made safe though.

  • The offensive grafitti gas been overpainted and the falling canopy has been removed. The building is still derelict and covered in tags, but probably less of a deathtrap now.
