Shared / communal gardens

We have a shared garden for residents and it is locked, we pay yearly for a key and upkeep of the gardens.

Couple of days ago the police were called to the garden, think it was because someone was sunbathing and it was thought to be a public space.

Anyway they spoke to a resident and said it was fine. We now have a laminated sign saying the police have said 2 residents only in garden well spaced, or a family group. Taking it in turns, basically. there are two locked areas so makes it easier.

Just to let anyone know if they have the same. I'm glad i can take the DC in there as we have a flat and no outdoor space, had not been using it until now.

Which police force is this please? Each seems to be deciding its own exact interpretation of the rules.

I'm quite liking that someone called the police on us and it has now given us permission to use it!

Thank you. Yes, that clears it up nicely. I wonder what the Thames Valley Police in Oxfordshire would make of it.

They asked of it was a private garden which seemed to make the difference. rather than a public space.
