A NEW youth shelter could be on the agenda for Buntingford.

Buntingford Town Council have drawn up a list of three possible sites for the shelter: Norfolk Road playing fields, Hare Street Road playing fields, and the Seth Ward Community Centre.

Town clerk Jill Jones said: "A shelter would provide a ­gathering point for young ­people, and would hopefully help with the prevention of crime and anti-social behaviour.

"A lot of the villages have them and they have proved very ­popular.

"We haven't decided to go ahead just yet.

"All the sites we've come up with are near residential areas and we want to consult ­residents first as we understand that they may have concerns."

A youth shelter is an open- sided structure similar to a bus shelter, and may contain ­features such as solar-powered lighting.

Consultation forms were included in the most recent ­edition of the town council's news letter.
