On 18th April 2012 members of the Priority Setting Meeting for the Chilwell Neighbourhood Policing Team met and decided on the 3 priorities for the next 3 months.
The Neighbourhood Priorities which have been agreed are as follows:
1. Vehicle Related Nuisance
2. Environmental Issues
A summary of each of the issues and some of the proposed actions are as follows:
Vehicle Related Nuisance
Speeding Vehicles – the Local Beat Team will be deploying the speed measuring device primarily on Banks Road, Long Lane and Swiney Way. Please be aware that the speed limit on each of these roads are 30mph and drivers travelling in excess of 30mph may be prosecuted by way of a Fixed Penalty Notice.
Parking Problems – the Local Beat Team will be patrolling Banks Road, Bispham Drive and Chetwynd Road Schools. We will be ensuring that vehicles are parked within the law and are parked so as not to cause a danger to other road users but more importantly the children who attend these schools. We will also be arranging to visit each school and provide an input to the pupils on road safety.
The Local Beat Team will also be patrolling around the junctions of Attenborough Lane, Long Lane and Barratt Lane and will ensure that all vehicles are parked correctly and are not causing an obstruction.
If you notice a vehicle which you believe is parked causing an obstruction please contact a member of the Local Beat Team.
Anti Social Behaviour caused by drivers of vehicles – The Local Beat Team has received reports of nuisance behaviour by drivers on Chilwell Retail Park. We are currently liaising with the landowners of the park to establish whether any improvements can be made to the carpark in order to reduce this issue.
The issue of dog fouling with Attenborough and Toton was raised at the meeting. The Local Beat Team whilst patrolling will take note of streets where this is a problem and will inform Broxtowe Borough Council to establish whether the street can be cleaned and whether dog waste bins can be installed. If you notice a street in the area has a problem with dog fouling please contact either Broxtowe Borough Council or the Local Beat Team.
We have also had reports of littering on Crofton Road which may involve pupils of Local Schools. We will liaise with the Schools Officer to request that an input be given on the correct disposal method of litter.
The Local Beat Team will continue to patrol the area in order to prevent and deter these crimes. We will ensure that where an offence has taken place then the residents on that street will be informed and that also a Neighbourhood Alert will be sent out as soon as possible.
We will also talk to residents and give appropriate crime prevention advice.
These priorities will be valid until July 2012.
If you would like any further information about these priorities then please contact the Local Beat Team
