Undesirable Activity in our Area

Undesirable Activity in our Area

Dear residents, this is to update you on our current situation regarding undesirable activity in Malthouse Lane, the car park servicing the park, the Causeway and Valley Road.

We are supporting our residents fully and have been highlighting these issues for the last three months.

As is usual in the summer months  not only have visitor numbers increased but also anti social behaviour and drug use/dealing.

We asked and were given extra police patrols. These are ongoing along with plain clothes surveillance and a multi agency operation which is involved on the lakes.

The Anti Social Behaviour Team from Stratford District Council will also be working alongside the police, led by a Sgt. Thomas.

We are doing our best to monitor the situation and we ask that residents work with us. Continue reading Undesirable ActivityCommunity…
