Neighbourhood priorities

We asked, You Said, We did

How we have addressed the local issues you raised with us.

We asked

What concerns do you have about your neighbourhood?

You Said

Local residents reported youths were in vehicles congregating in to the car park late at night and in to the early hours of the morning. The vehicles in question were seen to be speeding around the car park causing a nuisance to neighbouring houses and businesses.

We did

We liaised with the businesses on the retail park and advised them to utilise the barriers and bollards that were in place to prevent cars from entering the car park upon closing. Officers patrolled the area during the relevant times to obtain names and addresses of all drivers and passengers present. Drivers were spoken to and offences committed were dealt with positively. There have been no further reports of anti social behaviour in the area.  


You said

Local residents reported youth anti social disorder within the Cartmel Green area involving youths gathering around the communal areas. In addition youths were using mini moto's around the area of Saint Cuthbert's Green which was giving the residents cause for concern due to the excessive noise and safety for those who were using them. 

We did

We have worked closely with our partners to identify those responsible. There has been an increased uniformed police presence with officers who continued to patrol the area along with council wardens to tackle the disorder. We asked the local neighbourhood to assist us with any information in order to help us stop the use of mini moto's in the area. The police attended a walk about with local councillors in order to obtain further information. This assisted us to take further action to those causing disorder in the area. 


You said

Local residents reported youth anti social behaviour in the area of Kingsway and Willow Avenue involving large amounts of youths gathering around residents' properties, this was causing concerns for those residing in the area. The youths were reported to be playing ball games in the street, damaging property, consuming alcohol and causing general disorder.

We did

We worked closely with the council and housing to identify those responsible. There continued to be an increased uniformed police presence with officers who patrolled the area along with council wardens to tackle the disorder. Several youths were identified as responsible and further action was taken by the police in conjunction with the Housing Association. This enabled us to take positive action against all involved with respect to enforcing tenancies and referring youths to the Youth Offending Team. This has resulted in a large reduction of anti social behaviour and subsequent calls to the police over the last 2 months. We have been reassured by the positive feedback from residents that what we have implemented has been successful. We would like to thank the residents for their continued assistance and patience.
