Neighbourhood Priorities for Ashfield Rural

Ashfield priorities

Sutton Town Centre Retail
Crime

Why is this the priority?

Last year saw problematic behaviour mainly centred around the misuse of drugs (mamba). This brought with it increased volumes of ASB and retail crime. Last year saw the implementation of a problem solving plan which reduced the amount of drugs and ASB activity within the town centre.However across the district retail crime has increased with Sutton being statistically the most affected area and we want to reduce this The warmer months also traditionally bring an increase of ASB in the town centre which we hope to be proactive in preventingSutton is also soon be entering a stage of regeneration and the issues above can reduce the effectiveness of this work and as part of the Ashfield community partnership we are dedicated to supporting our partners to making Ashfield a better and safer place to live and visit

What are we doing?

The town centre now has a dedicated beat officer and PSCO who are engrained within the community. This is very important for engagement and will ensure that we understand the views of the community when making plans to resolve issues. A bespoke partnership problem solving plan is to be implemented. This is currently in the planning stages and awaiting detailed analysis to understand the overall problem before establishing a collaborative approach towards talking the problem. This will aim to tackle the most problematic offenders in the area. We are currently in engagement with Ashfield District Council to identify a base for officers form the Police and Council to use within the beat area. This will provide better engagement opportunities and ensure we are better established within the community.

ASHFIELD RURAL PRIORITY: NEIGHBOUR DISPUTES

After a meeting with representatives from the Rural Villages (Selston, Annesley Woodhouse, Jacksdale, Underwood, Westwood) it was decided at the May 2014 meeting that the priorities for the area would focus on Road Safety and Neighbour Disputes.
Neighbour Disputes are a regular occurrence within our communities and most resolve themselves peacefully. However there are occasions when disputes get out of control affecting individuals vulnerability, mental health and wellbeing. Disputes can also lead to criminality resulting in complex court cases and imprisonment.
It is an absolute priority for Nottinghamshire Police to reduce the risk of disputes escalating out of control.
We work in partnership with Ashfield District Council, supportive agencies, NHS, Fire, local GP’s and community groups who support, intervene, mediate and problem solve these disputes to successful conclusions with ourselves.
We will feedback monthly in how we are improving and supporting the local communities in reducing the risk of disputes.
September 2014 Update:
We have managed a number complex disputes over the past 3 months. Fortunately complex neighbour disputes rarely raise their heads however when they do, its important that we act swiftly in a proactive way to ensure interventions are put in place to reduce risk to all concerned and support pathways are implemented.
Currently Nottinghamshire Police work very closely with the Antisocial Behavioural HUB at Ashfield District Council when dealing with such disputes. We meet in various forums to discuss interventions and to ensure vulnerability is identified early and managed appropriately. It is also important to ensure that the perpetrators of such incidents are robustly managed.
Recently we have used the above process to bring a long and complex dispute to a satisfactory conclusion for all parties concerned.

ASHFIELD RURAL PRIORITY: ROAD SAFETY

After a meeting with representatives from the Rural Villages (Selston, Annesley Woodhouse, Jacksdale, Underwood, Westwood) it was decided at the May 2014 meeting that the priorities for the area would focus on Road Safety and Neighbour Disputes.
The rural villages have many roads connecting the local communities. All have hazards from blind bends, dangerous junctions to sharp bends. Various contributory factors increase the risks of incidents. These could be down to change in climatic conditions to people walking on the road.
With this in mind its important that road users drive in accordance with the prevailing road conditions and within the law.
Nottinghamshire Police is committed to road safety and locally we will carryout Fatal 4 operations focusing on Speed, Drink Driving, Seat Belt (not wearing) and Mobile Phone use whilst driving. These operations will run indefinably and could be any time and any place within the rural community.
We will feedback regularly on these operations.
Feedback July to Sept 2014:
During this past 3 months we have carried out Operation Packhouse with focuses on the Fatal 4 (Drink / Drugs, No Seatbelts, Speeding and use of Mobile Phones).  This operation has run 2 days every week since the begining of July 2014.  As a result of the operation we have given out over 300 tickets with more than half being related to speeding on our roads in the Ashfield South area.  This operation will continue for the rest of the year supporting other operations as we move closer to Christmas peroid.
