What's Happening In Your Area?

Details

Anti-social Behaviour  -  Kingston Gardens

Annually during the summer months we see an increase in A.S.B and drug use in the area of Kingston Gardens and Kingston Woods. This area is also known locally as The Waterworks. This whole area consists of a large field, childrens play area (park) and a wooded area which is divided by a lane which leads to residential properties. The area attracts a lot of families, dog walkers and children of all ages. Unfortunately though in more recent times we have seen an increase in large groups of teenagers gathering on the field and in the wooded area where there is occasional clear evidence of drug use and consumption of alcohol.

Youths have previously been camping out in the wooded area and started small bonfires, played loud music and generally caused A.S.B which affected local residents and visitors to the area . We have identified this location as one of our key community priorities and we are targeting the area with dedicated high visibility patrols where we will engage with youths in the area, explain the issues we are having with litter, drugs, alcohol etc and identify any possible offenders wherever possible. Over the last year we have worked closely with North East Linc's council, Humberside Fire & Rescue Service and local residents to try and make this a nicer and safer environment for everybody who visits the location.

UPDATE

Over the last year we have completed Humbertalking surveys with most local residents who live in this area. Their primary concerns are the congregation of large groups of youths, general ASB and more recently some small fires which have been set in the wooded area. We will continue to work with the fire brigade and local council to try and reduce these issues. As Covid restrictions are now easing and there is now an increase in footfall in the area we will be stepping up our patrols in the area. Keep checking this website page to look out for engagement opportunities with us in this location where you can come and see us to discuss any issues or concerns that you have.

JULY UPDATE - Due to the recent increase in hot sunny weather we have encountered more youths congregating on the field area and drinking alcohol. Alcohol has been seized from groups of youths and this will continue to happen. Those found with alcohol who are over 18 and in seperate groups have been advised to use the litter bins provided, be respectful to local residents and visitors to the area and be mindful of their actions. Patrols will continue in the area through the summer especially as the schools break up.

On 21/07/21 local officers met with a representative from the parks and open spaces section of NE Linc's council and a site visit was conducted to the wooded area where the remaining fallen logs were identified for removal. This will happen in the next couple of weeks and will hopefully reduce the number people congregating in the woods who would normally sit on those logs to use drugs or consume alcohol.

AUGUST UPDATE - The logs have now been removed from the area which has seen a reduction of youths congregating in the wooded area and reduced calls for service. Local neighbourhood policing team have been working with North East Linc's council and the Yarborough ward councillor to identify dead trees for removal and also look at replacing a boundary fence between Kingston Avenue and the wooded area. This multi-agency work is ongoing.

 

Anti-social Behaviour  -  Freshney Green

Anti-social behaviour in the Freshney Green area has increased over the past few months. Youths have primarily been congregating outside of the Freshney Green Medical Centre and also on the main Green area on Silver Birch place but have been seen causing issues throughout the whole area. These issues have unfortunately consisted of youths causing damage, drinking alcohol and repeatedly breaching COVID-19 regulations regardless of government guideline changes. This has included youths congregating in private car-parking areas and archways around Wild Cherry Mews.

The local Policing team have and will continue to work with staff at the medical centre, Freshney Green Management Ltd and other key stakeholders to formulate realistic problem solving tactics. Currently, we are targeting the area with dedicated high visibility patrols. We will challenge youths committing anti-social behaviour and obtain their details, as well as conduct home visits to inform parents. Some youths recently involved in ASB and criminal acts have been referred through to the Youth Offending Service due to issues caused not only in this area but across the Yarborough Ward.

We are currently in the process of conducting Humbertalking surveys with every resident in the Freshney Green area. We are progressing well with this and may be knocking on your door very soon. Please keep checking this website page to look out for engagement opportunities with us where we will advertise a date and time for when you can meet us in the area to discuss any issues or concerns that you have.

 *Update* - On the 11th june 2021 a youth caused irrepairable damage to one of the young trees on the green area at Silver Birch Place. Through our enquiries we identified the suspect and spoke with the young male and his parents. This male has accepted responsibility and has now been referred to the Youth Offending Service for reparation work and education.

SUMMER UPDATE - Although the area has remained very busy with footfall and children playing over the summer months we have seen a reduction in calls for service in this area. The Humbertalking surveys have continued on Elder Road, Sorrel Road, Wild Cherry Mews with more to follow on surrounding streets. This area continues to be one of our main properties and we will continue to work with Freshney Green Management Ltd, Yarborough ward councillor and Freshney Green Medical Centre to identify and reduce any upcoming problems in the area.
