Statement on resident fall at Logan's Meadow

3 August 2022

In response to an enquiry from the media we issued the following response about a fall a resident had at Logan’s Meadow.

A spokesperson for Cambridge City Council said: “We hope that the resident is well following the fall.

“We had not received a report that our resident had an accident at Logan’s Meadow. Resident safety is very important to us, which is why we check our open spaces, parks, and playgrounds regularly. We encourage residents who come across anything that might put them and others at risk to report it to us so that we can take action.

“Logan’s Meadows is a local nature reserve, and we try to maintain a balance between making sure it is accessible for residents and visitors to enjoy the space whilst also creating a habitat that meets the needs of wildlife in the area to improve biodiversity.

“For this reason, there is tall growth in the area which is likely to have blown over onto the path due to the wind. We have sent an officer to look at the area and take any action necessary to ensure the pathway has no obstructions and is safe for residents to use. We will also be assessing the handrails and taking any action required.”

Residents can report a problem by completing one of the forms available on our website: cambridge.gov.uk/report-a-problem-in-a-park-or-playground

The executive councillor leading on this matter is Cllr Alex Collis (Labour), Executive Councillor for Open Space, Food Justice and Community Development.
