Wantage / Grove neighbourhood

Your neighbourhood

Local priorities

The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:

  1. Rural Crime. Due to the very isolated location of farm outbuildings throughout the Vale of White Horse, the area is being targeted for theft of plant, tools and diesel. Incidents of criminal damage.
  2. Seasonal Initiatives. Burglary Non Dwellings - across the Wantage and Grove Neighbourhood.
  3. Anti-Social Behaviour. Incidents of anti-social behaviour in Bohams Road, Blewbury, Duke of York Avenue, Milton Heights, Sainsbury, Wantage, Betjeman Park, Wantage and Old Mill Hall, Grove. Police continue to patrol the areas while engaging with offending groups.

These are being dealt with by your neighbourhood policing team in partnership with residents and other agencies. Progress will be reported in the Neighbourhood updates.
