The local priorities were reviewed at the Southern Cluster Safer Neighbourhood Committee held on the 19/04/2012..
They have subsequently been agreed by the Southern Cluster Safer Neighbourhood Committee.
The new Priorities for the next three months are :-
1. Vehicle Nusiance- speeding-parking
2.Enviromental Issues-dog fouling -fly tipping
April 2012 Update
Dangerous driving and inconsiderate parking at the local schools on Horsendale, Larkfield and Mornington which causes annoyance and more importantly danger to young children crossing roads nearby. A similar issue is regularly occurring at and on the surrounding roads near to Jungletastic Play Centre on Nottingham Road.
Mobile speed cameras continue to be deployed on a regular basis in Nuthall area.
The local beat team continue to use the handheld speed gun and are taking a pro-active approach to those who offend by issuing Fixed Penalty Notices (FPN).
Partnership work is underway for traffic calming measures in Nuthall.
Interactive speed sign erected on Nottingham Road, Nuthall near to the junction of Highfield Drive on Monday 19/03/2012.
Double yellow lines introduced to roads near to Horsendale Primary School and Jungletastic on Nottingham Road. Restriction parking line also introduced at Mornington Primary School.
Dog fouling, Fly Tipping and Littering are the three main issues that have been raised in order for this to become a priority for the Southern Cluster Safer Neighbourhood Committee.
There are also reports of dog fouling on green areas, footpaths and pavements. This can cause health problems to children or adults using these areas.
The local beat teams will talk to the Broxtowe Borough Council Neighbourhood Warden Department to arrange for a clean up team to attend the green areas, footpaths and pavements when ever possible. This will clean up any dog fouling left and prevent health problems.
The local beat teams will speak with the Broxtowe Borough Council Street Cleansing Team to arrange regular patrol of the affected areas for fly tipping and littering. New reports of fly tipping will be reported to the team as soon as possible in order that officers can make early attempts to trace the offenders.
Oakash Court Flat complex are all situated on Ash Crescent/Oak Drive this is predominantly where the anti social behaviour is taking place.
The Local Beat Team’s have been holding regular meetings with the anti social behaviour officer in relation to incidents reported over the month. The Local Beat Team’s have carried out a number of visits with the anti social behaviour officer to known offenders who have been given warning letters and suitable advice in the presence of their parents.
These youths will be monitored by Police over the coming months. The above actions in conjunction with an increase in high visibility patrols has seen a significant reduction in the number of calls of anti social behaviour.
CCTV camera's and signage have assisted in reducing the number of anti social behaviour incidents being reported at the Oakash Court Flat Complex.
Please encourage all friends, family and neighbours to sign up to Neighbourhood Alert as it’s a simple way for me as the local beat officer to pass out important and relevant messages quickly to residents of Nuthall and Strelley Village.
