What's Happening In Your Area?


Eastgate Flats - Drug Related Issues - COMMUNITY PRIORITY

Following the recent HumberTalking survey undertaken in Eastgate Flats, we are working closely with East Riding of Yorkshire Council to tackle the issues you told us about.  I am pleased to be able to inform you that we have commenced legal action against multiple tenancies. This is only part of the work we have planned, if you have any information that that will support this community priority please call Humberside Police on 101 or East Riding of Yorkshire Council on 393939 or alternatively  Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.


Today, Hull Magistrates Court granted a full closure order for 42 Eastgate, Goole meaning that the tenant or any other person cannot enter the property. This is following the assistance of Operation Galaxy to execute an Misuse of Drugs Act Warrant on 9th June resulting in three arrests.  We received information that anti-social behaviour continued at the property as soon as they were released,  Goole Community Policing Team and East Riding of Yorkshire Council have therefore taken this action to protect the community from anti-social behaviour and provide a longer term solution in addition to the enforcement action already taken. 


On Tuesday we executed drug warrants at Eastgate Flats and Chiltern Road, Goole with 5 people being arrested for Possession with Intent to Supply Class A Drugs.  This is as a result of you telling us what's going on and what matters to you in your community.  We really want to make a difference in the long term therefore we are continuing to work with partners including East Riding of Yorkshire Council to make the area safer and stronger.  This includes serving notices to seek possession of properties linked to crime and anti-social behaviour and a process of ensuring those with a history of such behaviour are not allocated properties in Eastgate Flats in the future.  We have the support of our proactive task force Operation Galaxy.  Anyone with information about drugs being dealt in their community can call us on 101 and report their concerns.


We continue to work with the Local Authority to focus on local issues to protect the community. On Wednesday 20th May PCSO Sarah Lonsdale was on joint patrol with an East Riding of Yorkshire Council Housing Officer around Eastgate Flats. Over the last few weeks we have seen an increase of fly tipping within Eastgate, large items have been left in the communal area both outside and inside of the blocks of flats. We are currently in the process of checking CCTV to identify offenders, their details will be then passed to Environmental Health to look at enforcement. We posted letters to every household in Eastgate to reinforce previous instructions about fly tipping and to advise residents about what the consequences are of committing this offence. There is no excuse to dump unwanted items in your community, it makes an area look unkempt, it causes a fire risk and other issues. 

We have also received reports of anti social behaviour within a flat, reports suggest persons are regularly visiting the property, having parties and being a general nuisance. We are in the process of viewing CCTV to ascertain what is occurring and we will be dealing with any offences that come to light. If you are concerned about the level of noise coming from a flat or any suspicious activity, please don't suffer in silence, report it to ERYC or Goole Community Policing Team. 

The local policing team and the local housing officer are still regularly patrolling Eastgate, engaging with residents and acting on any concerns that are raised. Community meetings have been put on hold due to Covid - 19 but we will resume them when able, the dates will be published on here and social media. If you do have any concerns in the mean time, please contact your local housing officer (Michelle Thorley) or your local PCSO (Sarah Lonsdale) on 101. If you see us on patrol please stop us for a chat. 

Cole O'Brien and Dwayne Pedder of Eastgate Flats in Goole have been arrested and charged with multiple offences that relate to violent crime in the Goole and the surrounding area. Both of the males have been remanded in custody, they are both due to attend Crown Court, the date is still to be fixed. 

There are several great projects we have arranged for Eastgate in the near future:

ERYC have lots of preplanned maintanence work in 2020. This will include removing all the benches in Eastgate, painting of the internal communal areas and the outside of the blocks, replacement of all windows and removal of stones in Eastgate to be replaced with another material. 

All residents are aware that there is an issue with the back gate which you gain access to Eastgate from Government Street. The spring has broken, there is a new one on order so as soon as this is fixed the gate will spring back shut when residents leave it open. This gate should only be used by residents as it can only be opened by the use of residents fobs. 

We are very passionate about improving the residents quality of life in Eastgate and one of the best ways we can do this is by listening to residents concerns. Can I please remind residents that we hold regular surgeries/residents meetings, both in and out of Eastgate. Please look out for these dates (available on "where we are" on this website) and attend to speak to the Police or the Council. Please don't presume that we are aware of issues, as we may not be! 

As part of this multi agency working we are offering help and support for tenants with mental health and physical health issues, as well as tenants struggling with drug and alcohol problems. ERYC will be offering family and tenancy support to encourage sustainable tenancies.


 Roads Policing Unit

As a result of concerns raised regarding road related offences our Roads Policing Unit were in the local area on the 27th May with drivers dealt with in Goole, Howden, Rawcliffe, Airmyn and the M62. #keepingYouSafe # inYourCommunity.

Anti-Social Behaviour in Goole Town Centre

Goole Neighbourhood Policing Team continue to deliver high visibility reassurance patrols to deter potential anti-social behaviour in Goole Town Centre.

The recent reports have suggested that ASB is occurring on the Gordon Street area of Goole.

Sergeant Dave Lonsdale of the Community Policing Team said, “I have been talking to the local councillors about concerns over antisocial behaviour (ASB) in the Gordon Street area of Goole.

“Although we have not had many reports to the police about ASB, it is not to say that residents have not experienced it and it’s something that between us at the police and the local authority would work together to resolve.

“I would appeal for anyone who witnesses or is subjected to ASB to have a look at our website to see who the most appropriate agency needs to be informed to deal with the situation.

“Many incidents are dealt with by the local authority and not the police, our website gives guidance on this:

“I know the affect that antisocial behaviour has on a community and would appeal for anyone who is subjected to threats, personal property graffiti, hate crimes or harassment to contact the police directly on 101 to report it to us so that we can deal with it for them

“If residents have concerns over young people gathering in large groups, noise nuisance, public property graffiti, littering or fly-tipping they should call the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

“We all have a role to play in making our communities safe for everyone.  The community policing team will continue to work closely with the local councillors, local authority and charities in Goole to keep Goole a safe and happy place to live.”

Good News 

A driver has been arrested for drink driving and driving without a licence. The driver was stopped on Lime Tree Avenue, Goole and provided a road side breath test which was three times over the prescribed limit. He has now been charged and will now appear before the courts. The vehicle has also been seized.

Sgt Farley said” I am extremely passionate about road safety and protecting the public against dangerous and careless drivers. Drink driving in particular causes many deaths or serious injuries on our roads and we will actively pursue offenders.

We are out daily stopping cars and speaking to drivers, the majority of which are abiding by the law. The roads are a lot quieter than usual but this does not mean we will tolerate poor driving or turning a blind eye to offences.

Road traffic collisions are still occurring and people are still been killed or seriously injured, we will continue to enforce legislation to protect the public and save lives”
