Sta­tis­tics about Fel­lowes Gar­dens

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

FIG­URES re­leased by the coun­cil as it con­firmed the fund­ing for the Fel­lowes Gar­dens re­de­vel­op­ment show the is­sues that have blighted the area over the years.

Data from the coun­cil and its part­ners shows:

• In the last five years the coun­cil has at­tended calls for ser­vice at 81 sep­a­rate homes, many on mul­ti­ple oc­ca­sions.

• The anti-so­cial be­hav­iour team has dealt with 20 cases in the last two years.

• The fire ser­vice has at­tended 15 in­ci­dents in the last four years.

• Of­fi­cer time over the last 18 months equates to 80 hours for Cross Keys’ neigh­bour­hood man­agers and 10 to 12 hours per week for Cross Keys’ anti-so­cial be­hav­iour man­agers.

• There were 250 po­lice vis­its in the last 18 months and 463 in­ci­dents were re­ported in the last 12 months.

• There have been nine ac­tion plans put for­ward for the area.

The re­gen­er­a­tion will see foot­paths resur­faced, play ar­eas up­graded, garages re­built, park­ing im­proved, land­scap­ing in­stalled and new fenc­ing and light­ing put in place through­out.

Cllr Matthew Lee says that the his­tor­i­cal prob­lems have been cre­ated by the poor lay­out of the es­tate.

He said: “It has been an area of fo­cus for the po­lice for a num­ber of years.

“It is just a very poorly de­signed area from the 1960s where there’s al­ways places for peo­ple to hide which we need to do away with and I’m glad that this is hap­pen­ing.”
