Central – at the October PACT meeting held at St Peter’s Church Hall, Brinkman Street, the following issues were raised as PACT priorities:
1. Anti-Social Behaviour in the Copper Close, Brittania Close and Dukes Crescent areas weekdays 2:30pm - 4pm. Residents describe this as intimidating for elderly residents, and is having a negative impact on the local community.
We plan to tackle this through joint patrols with Police and Council Wardens, identifying those involved and addressing the issue through both engagement with Youth Services and enforcement options.
2. Drugs activity at a number of locations within the area, which is affecting community safety and residents quality of life.
We plan to tackle this through a combination of intelligence gathering and targeted activity to identify offenders and disrupt drugs related activity.
3. Speeding around the Doncaster Road / Cemetery Road junction, representing a danger to residents and other road users.
We plan to tackle this in conjunction with the Safety Camera Partnership, who will conduct speed enforcement checks at that location.
