Community wardens are to carry out extra patrols in response to youths causing havoc at a disused bowling green.
Concerns have been raised about youngsters jumping on the roof of the former Whitfield Bowling Club and damaging fencing, causing headaches for nearby residents in the process.
The issue was raised at a meeting of Whitfield Development Group, at which members were assured wardens will patrol the area in a bid to clamp down on the problem.
The area has been plagued by antisocial behaviour in recent months.
Xplore was forced to cancel buses after the vehicles were pelted with stones over several nights.
Youths have also reportedly been setting fire to bins with blazes regularly started in Middleton Woods. And a major fire this week, believed to have been sparked after youngsters started a bonfire nearby, engulfed Braeview Academy.
Resident Angela Robb told the meeting: “There’s been quite a few issues with the bowling club.
“The gates were left open and kids now think they can go and play in there, jumping on the roof and taking off bits of the fence.
“It’s mostly smaller kids but there’s quite a few teens there as well.
“Honestly, it’s as if they are sitting in my garden that’s how close it is. There’s a lot of noise coming from them and I’m scared to take the dogs out.
“Don’t get me wrong, a lot of kids in Whitfield don’t act like this, but it’s something that’s giving me concern as a resident.”
Craig Ellingford from Dundee City Council’s Community Safety Team said wardens will now make more patrols in the area.
He said: “We’ll certainly take a look at that area to see what the situation is.
“Please always contact us if there’s ever an issue and we’ll happily go and take a look at it, that’s what the wardens are there for.
“In terms of the other antisocial behaviour,we’ve viewed some CCTV near the school and it’s just so hard to identify them. Some of them were causing damage and also targeting the buses as well.”
