Camden Council will correct a sign that says a park will be closed every day at dusk, despite it having no way to shut it.
The sign was put up by council workers in Fortune Green 10 days ago. The sign appears to be the same as others across the borough, with the name changed for the different parks.
However, at a full council meeting on Monday, Fortune Green councillor Flick Rea said the town hall has no way to shut the park, as it has no gates, prompting laughter from across the chamber.
She told the Ham&High: “It’s a very typical Camden thing to do. It’s very nice that there’s new signs but with this they appear to have done a ‘one size fits all’ policy, without any knowledge of what the park’s like.
“I don’t know how much it has cost us for it to be printed, and put up.”

A Camden Council spokesperson confirmed they will be correcting the sign.
