    No priorities.

    At the last Ridge Ward (NAT) Neighbourhood Action Team meeting held on 13th March 2013 at Scawby Village Hall No priorities were set as the members considered there were no significant crime or community concerns. The next (NAT) will be held on 12/06/2013 where any emerging priorities can be discussed.

    This shows that the current approach is highlighting a positive result for the large geographical Ridge Ward area. Crime and community concerns are reviewed on a regular basis and if a significant priority did arise an interim NAT meeting could be arranged to discuss.

    This was the concern about reports of young person(s) congregating outside the Town Hall, Market Place, Kirton Lindsey.

    Progress Update February 2014.

    At the last (NAT) meeting Matthew GROVE (Police and Crime Commissioner) was in attendance, Councillor Trevor FOSTER was chair for the meeting and it was confirmed by Cllr FOSTER that there was indeed money being made available by the council for a PCSO to replace the PCSO who had left last year.

    The current situation is that the replacement will in the near future be going through the relevant training procedure, once this has been completed the additional PCSO will then become part of the Ridge Ward Policing Team. It is not possible at this time to provide an actual start date for that officer, this will however be a welcome boost for the Ridge Ward and enable the team to advance Policing in the area with its reinstated staffing level in the Ward.

    Further clarification will be made at a later date when the exact arrival details are confirmed.

    During October 2012 members of the Ridge Ward Neighbourhood Policing Team have attended schools in the area to deliver Halloween “Stay Safe” posters.

    Also included in this initiative was for the local shops to be visited to inform of the annual awareness relating to the sale of Eggs & Flour around this period.

This area had become a congregating area for young person(s) who used the area to drink, smoke and drop litter this was affecting the local area. It was clear that the vast majority of young people living and visiting Kirton Lindsey are well behaved and cause no porblems. Unfortunately a small number do cause annoyance and it is those who are and will continue to be targeted by the Ridge Ward (NPT) Neighbourhood Policing Team.

    As a result of the reports this issue was brought to the attention of the Ridge NAT (Neighbourhood Action Team) and with the help of Safer Neighbourhoods and the support of local ward councillors. The Ridge NPT have attended and patrolled the area on a regular basis these patrols have result in a number of youths being indentified at the location and moved on there is also an option to send letters to parent(s) and or guardian(s) regarding this location. A zero tolerance approach has been implemented no youths are allowed to stay in that area. The location is a footpath and it should be used for that purpose. The increased patrols have resulted in youths no longer using that area to congregate. Further patrols and action will be taken.

    Parking concerns Nookings Drive, Hibaldstow

    It has been reported that there are ongoing concerns about inconsiderate parking in and around the Nookings Drive & Dallison Road area of Hibaldstow.
    The main reason for parking issues is the fact that more and more vehicles are connected to households in the area. The design and construction of the area is a major factor. It has been reported that some types of vehicle could find it difficult to drive through. This situation is not unique to this area and is a country wide factor. Parking is the responsibility of the vehicle drivers and a change of attitude and mindset to parking is the soloution.

    We did

    This has been an area which has been monitored by the Ridge Ward (NPT) Neighbourhood Policing Team. Due to the recent report officers have continued to patrol the area, if vehicle(s) are found which could be causing an obstruction have been dealt with via warning notices and any repeat offenders will be dealt with using fixed penalty notices. During the regular patrols there have been very few vehicles parking in a way causing an unnecessary obstruction. There are two dedicated parking areas at either end of Dallison Road which should be used which would help the situation but drivers will where possible due to limited off road parking will park as near as possible to their properties. It is highly unlikely that any (TRO) Traffic Regulation Order would be considered by the highways department and if yellow lines and restrictions were introduced this would result in current vehicles parking being moved to surrounding areas moving the concern and not resolving it.
    Patrols are continuing in the area and appropriate action will be taken depending on the individual circumstances.

Other areas in the Ridge ward have been mentioned this entry will be replaced by another area of parking consideration next month. The area of Nookings Drive will still be patrolled and relevant action taken.

    It must be understood that the primary resolution for any parking issues lies with the action of the vehicle driver. If they display due consideration such reports will of course be reduced. Certain location could be improved with (TRO) Traffic Regulation Orders but it must be said that this is only practical in a small number of new cases and will ultimately be the decision of the Highways after all the facts have been assessed.

    Cannabis Concerns Greetwell

    It has been brought to the attention of the Police regarding the possible use of drugs between Greetwell and Messingham. The likelihood is that cannabis is being smoked by young persons who are meeting up in cars.

    We did

    As a result of information received and with the assistance of Incident Response Police Officers at Brigg Police station at 2120hrs on Friday 12th January 2013 Police attended Brigg Road, Greetwell there found three adult males each in possession of a small quantity of a controlled drug class B Cannabis. As a result they were all interviewed and fully admitted the possession offence they were all dealt with by way of Formal Warnings for Cannabis. This sends out a positive message that action will be taken. If a vehicle driver is found in possession of drugs no matter how small and is in control of a vehicle at the time that person stands the risk of losing their driving licence for given period if the Police notify DVLA about the facts also a possession offence could have implications of job and travel prospects. So you have been warned.

    Parking Concerns Nookings Drive (Hibaldstow).

    It has been reported that there are ongoing concerns about inconsiderate parking in and around the Nookings Drive & Dallison Road area of Hibaldstow.
    The main reason for parking issues is the fact that more and more vehicles are connected to households in the area. The design and construction of the area is a major factor. It has been reported that some types of vehicle could find it difficult to drive through. This situation is not unique to this area and is a country wide factor. Parking is the responsibility of the vehicle drivers and a change of attitude and mindset to parking is the solution.

    We did

    This has been an area which has been monitored by the Ridge Ward (NPT) Neighbourhood Policing Team. Due to the recent report officers have continued to patrol the area if vehicle(s) are found which could be causing an obstruction have been dealt with via warning notices and any repeat offenders will be dealt with using fixed penalty notices. During the regular patrols there have been very few vehicles parking in a way causing an unnecessary obstruction. There are two dedicated parking areas at either end of Dallison Road which should be used which would help the situation but drivers will where possible due to limited off road parking will park as near as possible to their properties. It is highly unlikely that any (TRO) Traffic Regulation Order would be considered by the highways department and if Yellow lines and restrictions were introduced this would result in current vehicles parking being moved to surrounding areas moving the concern and not resolving it.
    Patrols are continuing in the area and appropriate action will be taken depending on the individual circumstances.

    Progress Update January 2013.

    The area of Nookings Drive continues to be monitored the recent poor weather has had an impact on available parking. Other areas in the Ridge ward have been mentioned this entry will be replaced by another area of parking consideration next month. The area of Nookings Drive will still be patrolled and relevant action taken.It must be understood that the primary resolution for any parking issues lies with the action of the vehicle driver. If they display due consideration such reports will of course be reduced. Certain location could be improved with (TRO) Traffic Regulation Orders but it must be said that this is only practical in a small number of new cases and will ultimately be the decision of the Highways after all the facts have assessed.

    Members of the Ridge Ward Neighbourhood Policing Team, PcTracey TEAL, Pcso’s Kevin HORSFALL & Robert STRAKER have continued to patrol in the area continuing to monitor the location.
    Issues of parking have also been raised with North Lincolnshire Council & North Lincs Homes this was partly to do with a request for additional parking it also made reference to parking on some of the grass verges in the area. This resulted with a site meeting being arranged for those relevant departments, the meeting was held on 21/02/2013 which included several local residents. The out come of that meeting was that no additional parking was required as there are two car parks provided by North Lincs Homes on Dallison Road which are currently under used.
    There was a request to convert a grass verge owned by North Lincs Council in front of the playing filed off Greenfield Drive but this has been rejected as it forms part of an open space area.
    To date North Lincs Homes have done all they can and will not be providing any additional parking.
    The Police are not responsible for policing grass verge parking but if necessary will assist by forwarded offending vehicle information for the attention and enforcement consideration of North Lincs Council or North Lincs Homes where applicable.

    Parking Concerns Cornwall Street (Kirton Lindsey).

    Over the past few months concerns about parking on Cornwall Street, Kirton Lindsey outside the Kirton Lindsey Primary School during term times when parents and guardians are dropping off in the morning and picking up in the afternoon children from the school.
    To date there have been no reported incidents where the safety of the children has resulted. There is a concern that the parking is causing traffic flow issues at the relevant times.

    We did

    As a result of the reports members of the Ridge Ward Neighbourhood team have attended at the location and contact has been made with a member of the local community who raised their concern. Ongoing visits and patrols in the area will continue to date a number of vehicle drivers have been contacted and suitable advice given.
    There area outside the school is partly covered by a schools travel zone the Highways department have been contacted and have passed on the reported comments to the relevant agency. There is a system where each individual location is assessed on its circumstances and any long term issues such as a TRO have to be considered by the relevant agencies and organisations. There are no known plans for such consideration at this time.

    The Neighbourhood Policing Team will continue to attend the area when practicable. A report was received on 15/02/2013 from a local resident who had parked a vehicle on Cornwall Street and at that time it was the only vehicle present, unfortunately when other vehicles parked to drop off children due to another vehicles parking location caused an obstruction for a bus to get past, this resulted with the innocent driver becoming involved in a verbal exchange with the driver of the bus and another vehicle. This is just one example of what could happen in an area if people do not consider the consequences of where they park.
    Drivers are also parking on a nearby grass verge which is not acceptable and is causing the verge to be churned up causing an unsightly mess.

    The message to parents & guardians is clear if you are attending the location to drop off and pick up children from school do so in a responsible and considerate manner.
    1. Do Not park across the entrances to driveways of local residents which then causes an unnecessary obstruction. (there is no excuse of “I am only going to be a couple of minutes” )
    2. Do Not park on the Yellow Zig Zag lines in the bay directly outside the school.
    3. Do Not park in such away that means a bus or coach size vehicle cannot pass along the carriageway.
    Please consider do I really need to drive the children only a short distance to school or can I walk.

    It is important that people drive and park their vehicles in a safe and considerate way. Responsible drivers make the roads safer for all of us. If you park in an inconsiderate way don’t be surprised when you are contacted by the Police or receive a (TOR) Traffic Offence Report.

    The area is not for the congregation of vehicles for person(s) to drink and cause a nuisance. Any person(s) found at the location committing any offence(s) will be dealt with accordingly. The Cadney Bridge itself is for the use of specific vehicles to get from one side to the other, no vehicles are allowed to park on the limited weight capacity bridge causing an unnecessary obstruction.

If any young person(s) are located they will be given suitable words of advice about any unwanted language and or behaviour. They will also be instructed to leave the area. There is a well equipped, well located playing field located off Northfield Road, Messingham which is the location where these young person(s) should be going to play football without the fear of disturbing or upsetting anyone, by playing football. Bad language will not be tolerated and it is important that a very small minority who use it are dealt with accordingly, there is no suggestion that any bad language has been directed at any local person(s) the indication that it is being used within the group being overheard by others.

    Please be aware that others may hear what is being said within groups and that swearing and abusive language is not acceptable.

    Youths Causing Annoyance Hibaldstow.

    We did

    As a result of this most recent report the area has been attended by Pc Tracey TEAL the Ridge Ward Neighbourhood Officer. The location was an area for increased patrols in recent months, however those patrols dealt proportionately with the concern at that time with it being resolved.
    This most recent report related to concerns about young person(s) attending at the Village Hall, going to the rear and leaving litter including broken bottles, such items
    caused a real concern and danger to the authorized users of the Village Hall which includes young children. It has also been noticed that there is some small graffiti type writing on a wall with a Black marker pen. Such behaviour is totally unacceptable.

    On the evening of Saturday 22nd February 2014 PcTracey TEAL attended the location there were a number of young persons in the car park area around one car, this group was monitored for a while and it was deemed appropriate to move them from the location. There is clear signage stating the car park is for the use of authorized users of the Village Hall and the Playing field. It is therefore not for general use or for a congregating area for person(s) not authorized.

    This location will continue to be monitored and patrolled by the Ridge Ward Neighbourhood Team.

    Vehicles Parking on Footpath.

    Residents in Hibaldstow report that they are concerned about vehicles blocking the footpath which runs along side Station Road, Hibaldstow.

    We did

    As a result of these reports Pcso Kevin HORSFALL and other officers have attended the area, there found a particular property is currently under going some extensive building work, this has resulted in a number of trade vehicles being at the address. Part of the issue was verge parking this offence is dealt with and enforced by North Lincolnshire Council are the lead agency. If there is an unnecessary obstruction or wilful obstruction of the footpath, this of course is dependant on the exact circumstance at the location. Advice has been given to the drivers of any vehicles found to be parking in any area where it is not suitable.

    Regular patrols are continuing and education of any such drivers is important, however if the education process is not adhered to then any repeat offenders could find themselves being dealt with for an “Unnecessary Obstruction” being issued with a £30 (thirty pound) Traffic Offence Report (TOR). Please remember it is “better to be educated than prosecuted”

    Think before you park!

    Humberside Police give the following advice:
    • Park your car on a private drive wherever possible.
    • When parking on the road, park close to the kerb.
    • Make sure emergency vehicles can get past your car on the road. (The fire engine might be on its way to your house!)
    • Do nothing that makes it less safe for other road users (whether they are other drivers or people on foot).
    Even if there are no yellow lines on the road, various rules apply to parked vehicles. Breaking these rules is an offence.

    Do Not Park:

    • On a footway or verge (People need to get past with their child’s buggy, and on grass verges which quickly dies leaving an unpleasant mud-bath)
    • Where the kerb has been lowered (This is the way into someone else’s drive; you have no right to block it.)
    • Anywhere near a road junction so turning traffic cannot see what’s coming.)
    • At night, facing oncoming traffic (i.e. on the ‘wrong’ side of the road)

    Be Warned, if your parked car is regularly causing an obstruction to other road users, Humberside Police can and will prosecute where necessary.

    Be a considerate driver, and when you park your vehicle do so in a considerate way.

    Allotments Messingham (Ongoing Priority).

    There were a number of allotments located off Butterwick Road, Messingham which were subjected to crime attacks. This was high lighted as an area requiring additional patrols. By the location and the nature of the allotments this was a challenging area.

    We did

    As a result follow up enquiries were made and additional patrols made in the area. There were also appeals for information and notices erected for the allotment holders also the introduction of CCTV and supporting signage has help to support the allotment holders. Patrols are continuing in the area and further allotment meetings will be attended by members of the Ridge Ward NPT.

    Progress Update March 2014.

    Since the last update there have been No further reported crime(s).

    Patrols will be continuing in the area as and when practicable.

    These types of crime have very disruptive impact, the allotment holders take valuable time, effort and dedication to look after their plots, the thieves stealing these items cannot understand the harm and distress they can cause through their actions. It is so important that any such offences are reported to the Police so as to be fully aware of what is happening in the Ridge Ward Area.

    Patrols will be continuing in the area as and when practicable.

    School Engagement (Hibaldstow)

    Request for road safety input

    We did

    On Thursday 13th March 2014, Pcso Kevin HORSFALL attended at Hibaldstow Primary School, there delivered a Road Safety talk / input for the reception year childrens ages 4 to 5 years. After this well received presentation the whole of the school were spoken to and a marked police van was also taken which was a big attraction for the children.
