Bicester Town neighbourhood
Local priorities - 'You said, We did'
The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:
You said: Anti-Social Behaviour
Main issues are the increase in ASB within child play parks and open spaces of land.
We have seen an increase in patrols around our open spaces and a specific operation is planned for August which will target anti-social behaviour along with vehicle crime in the area.
You said: Parking
Main issue areas are parking on single & double yellow lines in Bicester Town, use of the Cherwell District Council Resident Parking Scheme areas by non permit holders and obstructive parking on Langford Village particularly Mallards Way and outside the school.
During the month of June the Neighbourhood team issued 42 fixed penalty notices for illegal parking across the town. We are also undertaking patrols outside schools and speaking to drivers to try and reinforce the message.
You said: Speeding
Our current main focus areas are Banbury Road, Langford Village and Kingsmere
We have been carrying out regular speed checks in some key problem areas. On Wretchwick Way after reports of 'boy racers' using the road we issued 1 ticket for speeding 61 in a 50mph zone. We also conducted speed checks in Langford Village following complaints and issued 3 tickets in 30 minutes. The highest speed was 39 in a 30mph zone.
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.
