Gate keeps on being slammed shut and rattles continually day and night as the general public access the walkway next the house on Restharrow Mead. This loud banging at all times of the day and night is causing distress to the dog and family as it wakes everyone up at night. The gate has no purpose as there is no other gate along the public path which then opens up to various streets as well as the Bure Park Nature reserve. This has been an ongoing issue for a number of years but due to the current pandemic, users of the pathway now tend to kick the gate open and let it slam shut instead of using the handle and closing the gate behind them.
