Problems with anti social behaviour usually increase at this time of year but recently problems have reached new levels.
A cycle barrier at the entrance to the Thanet Road sports are was knocked over last week. Although there were signs of corrosion on part of the barrier, the responsibility has been placed at the feet of vandals. A temporary barrier is being installed this week,.
Elsewhere in the Foxwood area, noisy mopeds and cars trying to do hand break turns on amenity areas have been reported. We would expect that the police – who didn’t attend a residents association meeting yesterday – will be able to deal quickly with vehicle related issues like these.
Anyone spotting anti social behaviour or potential vehicle offences should report them to 101.
NB. The number of Police officers in the area has reduced over recent years. Crime levels are creeping up.
