Neighbourhood Priorities for Cuckoo Oak and Ironbridge

IssueActionDates

We are working closely with the Neighbouring Safer neighbourhood teams and the council to try and resolve this issue. Any bike used in an anti social or illegal manner on a road or footpath can be issued with a section 59 notice or seized.

If you have any information please contact:

101 for non emergency calls or

coi.snt@westmercia.pnn.police.uk

Several Speed surveys were carried out.  A couple of vehicles were stopped and drivers spoken too.  On the whole most vehicles monitored were driving to or below the 20 MPH.

Issue dated: 04/03/2015

Action dated: 30/11/-0001

Reports of dangerous and inconsiderate parking outside John Randall and Haughton School. Local residents report that vehicles regularly block footpaths and driveways during school closing time. In addition, vehicles use the grass verge between Ironbridge Road and Kemberton Drive as a cut through, which places other road users and pedestrians at risk.

 

Other concerns were that vehicles also park on double and single yellow lines on Queen Street and also on road junctions.

Safer Neighbourhood Officers will visit the location at specific times to tackle the issue within the next 4wks.

 

Vehicles found causing a nuisance or parked illegally will be dealt with appropriately.

Attending officers will also carry out spot checks for document offences such as Tax, MOT and Insurance.

Dedicated officers will also look at seatbelt misuse and take appropriate action.

Issue dated: 11/06/2018

Action dated: 30/11/-0001

Reported  excess  vehicle speeds along  20mph speed zone near to Alexander Fleming School and Sutton Hill Centre.

Drivers  found driving at excess speeds will be prosecuted as per West Mercia force policy.
