RESIDENTS -   (CarSh) (JoWhi) (RaBro) (ShHoc) (LiMars)
COUNCILLOR –. [Chris Bond] [Caitriona Bearryman]

1.0 Apologies: Derek Levy, NosRas, Loretta Walsh ^ Enfield Homes.

2.0 Chair: Currently Carole – Resident

2.1 Cape / ward panel opened by chair.

An observer from the Ecpp (Irene) was present and introduced.
Chair advised that a recent meeting there were conflicting messages regarding the future of Safer Neighbourhoods.
SGill advised that when he gets any updates re the Policing on the Borough he will pass it on.  Chris Bond Yes, very frustrating democracy in action
JoWhi I was recently at Town wards CAPE where we were told that police were poor value for money. However there are many plus points with safer neighbourhoods those being good relationships with the community - easily contactable - excellent local knowledge. If all this is lost our neighbourhood watch is pointless and we may as well pack up.

3.0 Priorities

3.1  CarSh reminds all that the current priorities are.
1. Burglary awareness and target hardening Lords NHW.
2. Theft from motor vehicle awareness Sketty road.
3. Landseer road for theft from motor vehicle.

3.2  SGill.  The main problem however is burglaries on the Avenues estate, we have tried a project on BHP ward, whereby members of the Cape have been going out my staff and giving information home security.  This has been very well received and it has increased the people available to me as they do not have an operational Police Officer.  We visited 351 properties and managed to speak to roughly 2/3 of the residents and we provided them with crime prevention devices.  There was general agreement to try this out on Southbury Ward.

4.0 Burglary awareness and target hardening Priority - Lords Nhw

4.1  SGill. We will be letter-dropping the area re: burglaries, we want to try and finalise the issue of the alleygating that has yet to be done in the centre of Southbury Ave.  I would like to progress a ‘roadshow’ whereby we will highlight the issues of burglary, and in particular the ongoing issues of Upvc doors. 

4.2  CarSh advises that she is trying to progress the alleygating as well and will chase up Lbe and provide an update at the next Cape.

5.0 Theft from motor vehicle awareness - Sketty Road and environs.

5.1  SGill.We patrol the area daily and we will be letter dropping the roads.  I would like to arrange a ‘roadshow’ using the Mobile Police Station to fit tamper resistant number plate screws.

6.0 Theft from motor vehicle awareness - Landseer road and environs.

3.  SGill. We patrol the area daily and we will be letter dropping the roads.  I would like to arrange a ‘roadshow’ using the Mobile Police Station to fit tamper resistant number plate screws. JoWhi asked whether the removal of the ringfencing was affecting the wards ability to work on the priorities?
SGill advises that he hoped that as the Olympics etc have finished we would get back to some level footing and be able to concentrate on priorities.  This month (Oct) I expect a minimum of 17 staffdays of abstractions.  We work 21days, multiply that by 3 Officers means there are 63 staffdays.  The abstractions are nearly the loss of one Officer for the whole month.  This does not include annual leave or the work we have to do after each burglary, and we have had a lot of burglaries.

7.0 Any other business

7.1 Chris Bond. Residents have now decided to oppose the plans for Broadfield square so that effectively finishes the scheme.  However the funding for the MUGA = (Multi Use Games Area) has not been lost and we hope to have the Muga on the playing fields.
 
7.2. Chris Bond.  There are issues with vehicles parking o/s Carterhatch School and I will e-mail parking enforcement.
 
7.3 Caitriona Bearryman.  On a recent walkabout in Broadfield Square I noticed the house with the very high fence, what is happening there?  LiMars advises that the property is almost complete and the fence will soon be removed.

7.4 CarSh.  The crashed scooter is still parked in Southbury Avenue.  Action John Wheatley to contact Lbe to have it removed when the tax runs out.

7.5 CarSh.  Children are habitually running across the central reservation on the A10 from the Mcdonalds to get to (I believe) Kingsmead.  Action John Wheatley to contact the school to advise them of this issue and the safety implications.

2.0 Chair:

Currently CarSh - Resident

2.1 Cape / ward panel opened by chair.

SGill Explained new CAPE times are due to officers being employed on Olympic aid this will also have an impact on how safer neighbourhoods will be able to work.  Asked members to think about priorities as it is doubtful that 3 priorities at this time are realistic due to a lack of staff and increased work load on officers JoWhi I deal with Town ward as well and it seems to me that safer neighbourhoods being ring fenced has gone by the wayside.

CarSh A recent partnership meeting revealed that Safer Neighbourhood officers are very dispirited.
SGill It remains the cape decision what the priorities are to be; however there is a lot of pressure to have a burglary priority. Then showed a map to members showing recent crime trends in the ward including. Theft from motor vehicles, Robberies, and Burglary hot spots.

Chris Bond We need to accept that there is a need for 3 priorities, the stats show we need three if we cannot

Police three the higher ups need to return staff levels to what they were so that we can. If something does not work it is their responsibility to make sure it does.

SGill : If that is what the CAPE wants that is what I have to accept and I do accept that three distinct priorities are shown. So in that case it will be :

1. Burglary awareness and target hardening Lords NHW.
2. Theft from motor vehicle awareness Sketty road.
3. Landseer road for theft from motor vehicle.


3.0 Retail Pk priority - CLOSED
3.1 SGill Due to the level of crime on the retail parks there will have to be some patrols here, I will manage this internally.  

4.0 Lytchet estate - Asb by youths - new priority opened July 2011. CLOSED
4.1 LWalsh what is happening about CCTV on the Lychet estate. SGill I have been asked by residents if CCTV will be in use on the estate. Chris Bond It has been agreed I will chase it up.


5.0 Ladysmith Neighbourhood Watch
Chris Bond: Sam's cars have been seen washing vans in Kimberley gardens and photos have been sent to the council to deal with. 

JoWhi help is still needed with a vulnerable tenant in Sketty road. SGill We will look into it.

6.0 Southbury Avenue/Lords NHW
6.1 CarSh The barrier at the end of Southbury Avenue has now been replaced.


7.0 Ayley Croft Estate
7.1 A known male is living in a garage on the Ayleycroft estate and has now claimed squatter's rights.

8.0 Any other business

8.1 Chris Bond what is happening about a youth club being set up on the Ayley Croft Estate. SGill I don't believe this will happen Enfield rangers may be worth approaching on the subject will speak with them in the future.

8.2 Chris Bond Residents have now decided to oppose the plans for Broadfield square so that effectively finishes the scheme.

8.3 RaBro. A tree outside 51 Leighton road looks like a may fall down also what can be done about dogs fouling Bush hill park. JoWhi The same is happening in the QE2 fields. Chris Bond This was stopped in other areas just by leafleting and a couple of early morning patrols by council officers.

8.4 JoWh Exactly when will safer neighbourhoods change the way they work. SGill At the moment I don't know a lot of plans have to be made and they may need changing as ideas develop.  I hope that the changes will not negatively impact on the work done thus far to develop and maintain Community links.  

8.5 Chris Bond Could we talk about using the civic centre for our cape meetings in the future? All members agreed this was a good idea.
