Auckland Council orders kids roadside swings to be removed

Music 08/02/2017

The Auckland Council has demanded the removal of kids swings hanging on trees on the street.

The reason for it is due to safety and tree heath.

Parents in Calgary Street in Sandringham have been given notices ordering them to remove the swings outside their homes.

The council have said they are responding to a particular complaint rather than having a city wide crack down on street swings but parents in Sandringham are not happy about having to remove the swing their children play on.

There are no specific details on the complaint but the person who wrote the complaint was concerned that the tree branch was not strong enough to suitably support the swings.
