Ruscote, Hardwick and Neithrop neighbourhood
Local priorities - 'You said, We did'
The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:
You said: Parking
The main issue areas are Bath Road, Beaumont Road and around schools in the Town
Parking update for October – We continue to regularly ticket all vehicles parked illegally on Beaumont Road/Beaumont Close and around any of the Primary Schools. Bretch Hill Road in front of the Bradley Arcade shops is becoming a problem area, can we therefore remind people that there are two car parks for these shops in close proximity. Please park your vehicle correctly. Abide by the single/double yellow line restrictions. Don’t park too close to a road junction or by a dropped kerb where access is required. And do not park on the pavement s– they are for pedestrians.
You said: Speeding
The main issue areas are Ruscote Avenue and Longlandes Way
Speeding update for October - We are liaising with our Roads Policing Department with a view to planning some operations in specific problem areas in the near future.
You said: Anti-Social Behaviour
Our main issue areas are the Youth Club, Bretch Hill Estate and Princess Diana Park
ASB Update for October – Ongoing priority patrols have taken place in local parks after a recent increase in anti-social behaviour related incidents. Our Halloween patrols involved officers, PCSO's Cherwell District Council Safer Community Officers, out and about providing reassurance and interacting with the community. We encountered a criminal damage to a vehicle and an assault to a 17yr old during the evening. Officers did give advice to a group of youths seen wearing inappropriate face masks once they had been returned home and their parents/guardians were present.
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.
