CCTV is set to be installed at the new £800,000 Mountblow Sports Pavilion to stop trespassers from littering and damaging the project before it is even open.

Work on the pitches have now been completed, however, the site is not open to the public as work on the building is still ongoing.

West Dunbartonshire Council said the building work will be finished at the end of the month.

Despite the site not being open, the litter already left has been branded an “eyesore” for local residents.

One woman said: “It’s absolutely shocking the number of plastic bottles and the waste that’s on the pitches.

“This is the people using these pitches. It’s shameful the state of them for how new they are.

“It’s an eyesore for people to see it, despite all the public money being spent on it.

“There are plastic bottles, plastic bags everywhere. People are using the pitches and just leaving their litter.”

The sports pavilion was earmarked for the overhaul back in February 2017.

A spokeswoman for West Dunbartonshire Council said: “This litter was left by intruders to the site, which is not yet open to the public.

“As soon as we were made aware of it, we took steps to clear the area, and litter pickers will continue to visit the site on a regular basis.

“We have also arranged for additional CCTV to be installed, with links to the local police station, to discourage further trespassing.”

Last August the Post reported that residents hit out at the eyesore sports complex which was targeted by vandals as it awaited it’s restoration.

The security fences protecting the site and scaffolding planks were been pulled down, and graffiti was previously seen on the building.
