Local priorities - 'You said, We did'
The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:
You said: Speeding and Road Safety
You were concerned about speeding and road safety around Woodley
The team have been out and about trying to address and enforce this issue. On Thursday 15th December the NeighbourhoodTeam, along with Members of the Roads Policing Department, conducted a Traffic Enforcement Day. One vehicle was stopped for no Mot and a number of driver’s were issued with speeding tickets on Butts Hill Road. This also encompassed the Annual Drink Drive Campaign so the driver of every vehicle that was stopped was breathalyzed.
You said: Anti Social Behaviour
Woodley has seen a sharp increase in levels of Anti Social Behaviour since the Summer period.
We have worked with a number of young people to put in place Acceptable Behaviour Contracts. The ABC is a voluntary low-level tool used to establish a set of rules which the person agrees to abide by as a way to improve their overall behaviour. Whilst there is no legal penalty for the individuals should they breach the agreement, it does then allow us to deal more robustly through the courts, and ensure we are able to evidence continuous anti-social behaviour and a lack of willingness to change.
You said: Parking around Schools
Parking around schools continues to be a frequent issue across the Woodley area.
We continue to target roads around schools at drop-off/pick-up times and deal appropriately with parking offences. For minor first time infringements we will issue warning notices. For continual minor offences we will issue Fixed Penalty Notices. If we see infringements which we deem to be excessively dangerous we will not issue warning notices and will immediately issue Fixed Penalty Notices.
You said: Parking issues on Campbell Road
Issues with parking resulting in damage on verges in Campbell Road
We enforced parking, liaised with the local council and consulted with the Highways Department to put in parking restrictions.
You said: Anti-social Behaviour, Vandalism and Arson - Silver Fox Crescent
ASB, vandalism and arson at the derelict tennis club building in Silver Fox Crescent
We performed high visibility patrols, engaged with local residents and consulted with the land owners to make the site more secure.
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.
