- Area:Kingholm and Wotton
- Priority:Anti Social Behaviour Sandhurst Road
Information and related incidents have been reported to police stating that this area is having an increase in issues such as noise complaints, anti social driving , 'egging' of houses and cars and offensive verbal abuse towards residents . The local police and partner agencies are looking into all aspects of these reports to provide residents a quality of life.
- We aim to have frequent patrols in the area by Police Officers and PCSO's to combat these issues as well as liaising with the residents of Sandhurst Road and partner agencies. We actively encourage members of the Community to tell us if they witness anti-social behaviour and also to get involved with Kingsholm & Wotton Neigbourhood partnership.
- You Said We Did:A street surgery took place on 24th September on Sandhurst Road led by PC Mark Evans & PCSO Steve Harris. Around 20 residents of the community were spoken to, discussing complaints of anti-social behaviour in the area. Also present was Cllr Jeremy Hilton, Ismael Rhyman (Neighbourhood Management Coordinator, City Council), Ken Pitt (Lighting Manager for Gloucester City Council) and Dave Bush (Kingsholm & Wotton neighbourhood partnership). The aim was to gather the views of the community in relation to what had been happening in the area, in an effort to prevent this issue from reoccurring in the future and also to promote the Kingsholm &Wotton neighbourhood partnership. There was positive feedback from residents with interest in attending future partnership meetings as a representative for their area. We have taken actions away and this also resulted in Highways agreeing to replace low wattage bulbs in some of the lampposts' in the area, with ones affording much brighter lights. PCSO Kent had also attended the Sandhurst and Longford Engagement Group on the 19th September to discuss the same issues, she was very well received and Police will continue to attend this group.

Interaction with the Young people of Kingsholm & Wotton
One of our aims as a community team is to build closer relations with with young people in the Kingsholm & Wotton area.
We have identified that there is a lack of facilities open to young people in the area. We are hoping to form a youth club in the area. It is only in the 'thought box' process at the moment; a meeting has been arranged with Sarah Penny and Sam Harness from the Gloucester youth support team to discuss ideas including a suitable venue, target age range, activities, what the community would like and help with.
We will keep you informed of progress. If you be interested in getting involved as a volunteer or would like to be kept informed, please contact Pc Mark Evans here
As part of the safer schools partnership we have with schools in the Kingsholm & Wotton area, we are dedicated to ensuring the safety of all children attending their local school. It has come to our attention that there are concerns over illegal parking outside the school gates and along side roads which are endangering the safety of pupils, parents and staff.
We would urge, where possible, for parents/guardians to park away from the school in a safe and sensible area and then walk. Working in partnership with the county council civil enforcement Officers, the Gloucester Police community engagement team will be monitoring parking outside the schools and in the surrounding area. We will be dealing with any offences of illegal parking, in particular those that endanger the safety of pupils, parents and staff. We understand that it is only a very small minority of parents/guardians that park irresponsibly.
