The council has been contacted by families concerned about access to Brigg Recreation Ground over the summer.
The leader of North Lincolnshire Council, Rob Waltham, has issued the below statement:
“The way this has been presented is unfortunate. The council will not and should not restrict access to Brigg Recreation Ground – it will remain open and accessible through the summer for the community to enjoy.
“However, to maintain the quality of the pitches for the football season when it starts later in the year there will be a programme of activity through the coming months.
“Where the pitches need to be repaired there will be cordons and I would like to ask people to help us maintain the high standards by using other areas during these times.
“Any suggestion of complete closure and restriction is simply not true.”
More information about the facilities at Brigg Recreation Ground is available on our website.
