What's Happening In Your Area?


Eastgate Flats - Drug Related Issues - NEW 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.

COMMUNITY PRIORITY UPDATE - 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. 

A drugs warrant was executed on the 10 December 2019 by the local community officers and officers from Operation Galaxy at a flat on Eastgate. If you know of any drug dealing in your area, please let us know. Drugs will not be tolerated in our community.

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

On the 22 January 2020, ERYC and the Police held a recycling and waste event - "NEW YEAR, NEW WASTE". This was a great success with many items disposed of. ERYC will be rolling out new recycling bins and educating residents about how to dispose waste correctly. After this date there will be a no tolerance policy to fly tipping and we will be taking formal action. A Multi Agency Event to be held in Eastgate on Wednesday 11 March, 11am - 1pm. There will be several agencies in attendance including - Police, ERYC Housing Team, ERYC Tennant Participation, NHS Health Trainers, ERYC Waste and Recycling and Safer Communities. This will give residents a chance to speak to different agencies face to face about any issues or concerns they may have. 


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.

UPDATE: 19 December 2019

On 23 December 2019, ERYC removed items left in the communal areas of all the blocks in Eastgate. Part of the tenancy agreement is you cannot leave items in the communal area due to it being a fire and safety hazard. All residents have been made aware of this and have been told to remove all items by Monday, if they are not, the council will be removing them and residents will need to attend the council offices to ask for property back. This is ongoing and monitored by the council.

UPDATE: 5 February 2020

On 31 January 2020, Community officers and Operation Galaxy executed a warrant at an address in Eastgate. This was very successful, three persons were arrested, numerous items which we believe to be Class A drugs were seized and also a vehicle. All persons have been released under investigation whilst we carry out our enquiries. We are now working closely with Community Link workers who can support people to improve self care in the following areas: One or more physical long term conditions, smoking, drug and alcohol awareness, weight management, physical activity, social isolation, emotional wellbeing (low level stress and anxiety), carer support, welfare support, sexual health and relationships. If you would like to speak to a Community Link Worker, they will be at our next drop in surgery at flat 38 Eastgate - Monday 2 March, 10am - 1pm. Please note the Community Link worker will only be at the surgery 11.30am to 12.30pm so please pop during this hour if you would like to specifically see them.

Casualty Reduction Operation - Roads Policing

Roads Policing Officers have been in Goole working on a casualty reduction operation.  Several drivers have been dealt with for an array of offences including insecure loads, seatbelt, insurance, number plate and license offences.  A driver was also given a warning under the Police Reform Act 2002 for using a vehicle in manner causing alarm, distress or annoyance.  Roads Policing are part of our policing family dedicated to keeping you safer on our roads.


A day of action has taken place in Goole and the surrounding area focusing on casualty reduction. Our officers focused on the "fatal 4" which are considered the four biggest dangers whilst driving and have contributed to the 165,100 road casualties in the UK in 2018. These offences are inappropriate speed, using a mobile phone while driving, not wearing a seat belt and drink driving. The latest operation took place on the 17th of October 2019. As a result of this operation 9 x Traffic offence reports were completed, 2 x vehicles issues defect rectification scheme notices, and one vehicle was stopped as officers  had intelligence that it had been involved in a series of make off without payments (Fuel thefts). Details were obtained and the officer dealing with those offences informed of the occupants details, which will result in follow up action.

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.”
