The move comes following an incident on the playing fields on Kings Road on the evening of 4 August 2022, when an off-road bike was in collision with a five-year-old, who was playing football. The child sustained injuries to his lip and leg, which will require surgery.
A 17-year-old male – who cannot be named for legal reasons – was arrested and later released under investigation.
Chief Inspector Abigail Cronin for Neighbourhood Partnerships in Oldham said: “My thoughts are with the little boy who has been injured and I hope that he makes a speedy recovery.
“We understand the frustration of the local community with this type of anti-social behaviour and we want them to know that we are aware of it and have a plan in place to ensure that it is dealt with appropriately.”
