Carterton Neighbourhood Management Update

Posted: 08/10/2008 22:58:36

Neighbourhood Specialist Officer PC Richard Barnes provides this month’s update.

Bampton and surrounding villages
(PCSO Angela Alford)
“It’s been another relatively quiet month for Bampton and the local villages. Reported cases of criminal damage remain low and this is a reflection of the efforts of the neighbourhood team and local residents working together. However the level of anti-social behaviour in and around the Market Square continues. The team is putting in a concerted effort to try and deter this sort of behaviour by enlisting the help of parents. The reported behaviour ranges from groups of youths hanging around the square to vehicles blaring out music and doing wheel spins. A couple of scooter riders are also coming to our attention. Whilst we do not wish to appear killjoys the need to respect others has to be addressed. Litter is still a problem and could we ask that the litter bins provided are used.

“A meeting was held in the town hall in Bampton following a request from residents of Pembroke Place. The meeting proved constructive with further meetings, and actions, planned for the future. A meeting was also held between several parish councillors and PC Barnes to discuss local issues. There will continue to be regular meetings between these parties so that a better understanding of local concerns and the team’s actions can be discussed.

“The Speed Data Recorder (SDR) was installed along Bridge Street during September and the results showed there are no major problems. That said, the team will continue with the Speed Indicator Device (SID) in and around the local villages.

“Surgeries will continue at the Bampton town hall and the times of these surgeries can be found on the Market Square noticeboard. This is an ideal opportunity to meet your PCSO and discuss any issues that you may have. The surgery is open to all the local villagers to attend.”

Burford and surrounding villages
(PCSO Petra Summers)
“Tourists have continued to flock in and bring with it the usual parking problems. PCSO Summers has issued a number of tickets for parking on double yellow lines and also some for parking on the zig-zags on the crossing. This offence is particularly dangerous for the safety of pedestrians. Warnings for this sort of parking will not be given and tickets will be issued.

“The instances of anti-social behaviour have dropped quite considerably since warnings were given out to the main offenders. However, patrols will continue around Guildenford car park and other problem areas. Fulbrook Park continues to be brought to our attention too so patrols will continue.

“Reported cases of criminal damage throughout September have dramatically reduced. The team will not get complacent and high visibility patrols will continue in an attempt to bring the figures even lower.

“A reminder to all Burford and surrounding village residents that there is a police desk within the Tourist Information Office which is manned on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 2-4pm. Please visit the office if you have any issues or concerns.”

Carterton and Brize Norton
(PCSO Sara Holmes)
“During September the issue of anti-social behaviour seems to have quietened down. Now that the schools are back and the youths can only realistically stay out late on a Friday and Saturday evening time will tell if the anti-social behaviour returns. However, the team will continue patrolling around the usual trouble spots.

“Reported cases of criminal damage have shown a sharp increase during September. Unfortunately there has been no pattern to the damage which makes it very difficult for the team to target patrols in certain areas.

“Carterton also experienced a spate of vehicles having their tyres slashed over the weekend 19-22 September. All the vehicles were on the Shilton Park Estate and a leaflet drop was carried out to ask residents if they witnessed anything. This kind of incident is very rare and it is believed that the same person carried out all the offences. If anybody has information please contact 0845 8 505 505.

“The industrial estate by the back gate of RAF Brize Norton was targeted last month with several burglaries to premises. Again, if you have information please let us know.

“On a brighter note, Carterton and Brize Norton continue to be pleasant places to live and with the married quarter flats being knocked down the appearance of Carterton is beginning to improve. There are more flats being knocked down during October. Thames Valley Police, the Ministry of Defence police and the Royal Air Force police continue to work well together in an attempt to keep Carterton and surrounding villages a safe place to live and work.

“Finally, Halloween will soon be here again so could I ask all residents to be respectful of their neighbours and not knock on doors which are clearly displaying a poster requesting that they be left alone. This will ensure an enjoyable evening for all, both trick or treaters and those who wish to be left in peace.”
