Public help set police priorities
TACKLING speeding, anti-social behaviour and parking problems have been set as priorities for police by residents at panel meetings.
The meetings were held this week - one for residents of rural Eye, Thorney, Newborough and Peakirk and the other for the urban areas of Werrington, Paston, Gunthorpe and Walton.
The meetings, which take place every three months, give residents a chance to raise issues and concerns with police and partner agencies.
The priorities set at the rural meeting were to deal with anti social behaviour on the High Street and Bath Road in Eye; speeding on the B1443 Thorney Road and the Werrington Bridge Road and tackle anti social behaviour in Thorney Park, Thorney.
The priorities set at the urban meeting were to tackle anti social behaviour in Crabtree, Sheepwalk, Ringstead Road and Stowehill Road, Paston; deal with anti social behaviour in Morland Court and the Werrington Centre and clamp down on problem parking in Carron Drive, Hythegate, and Wycliffe Grove, Werrington.
