Lift kite ban

I would like to respond to last week s article regarding the banning of kites over 2m at the Imperial Ground.

I would like to respond to last week's article regarding the banning of kites over 2m at the Imperial Ground. I wonder if this is an example of excessive health and safety, with only superficial consultation and consideration.

Life is full of risks and simply banning an immensely enjoyable, appealing and visual sport with unsubstantiated claims is inappropriate. I have always found kite users courteous, considerate and they are no different from other outdoor pursuit enthusiasts who take calculated risks in order to keep themselves and others safe.

Common sense needs to prevail and the ban should be lifted until a proper consultation has taken place.

N George,
