Council bans ‘noisy’ children’s rugby side from using park
A children’s rugby team has been banned from training in their local park after residents complained they were too noisy.
The Council stopped Paignton’s under-10s side from playing tag rugby after complaints of “increased noise”.
But they’ve decided to go ahead with its under-10 match against Teignmouth on Sunday and has vowed to carry on using the pitches.
An online petition to rescind the ban has received more than 4,000 signatures.
Torbay MP Kevin Foster said the decision made the council look like “killjoys”.
He said the ban was a “total overreaction”.
