Priorities

  • Area:Tewkesbury Community
  • Priority:*Updated - Parking outside schools in the Tewkesbury & Twining neighbourhood areas
  • Action:
    • To improve safety for children and parents around predominantly primary schools
    • Educate drivers about the manner of their driving
    • Increased patrol and enforcement where necessary
    • Introduction of Thank You for Keeping Me Safe scheme
  • You Said We Did:
    The Tewkesbury Local Policing Team is responsible for this priority. The agreed actions for this priority were to improve safety for children and parents around schools in predominantly primary schools and the educate drivers about the manner of their driving and areas of improvement. Further actions included high visibility patrol and enforcement where necessary. The Tewkesbury Local Policing Team have spent a lot of time with schools in Tewkesbury conducting high visibility patrol and working with the schools to solve the problem. It is recognised that this issue is a problem at all schools across the borough. The team has been running Kiddicops for some time now, which addresses poor parking and speeding issues in schools in partnership with the teachers and pupils. We are also about to launch a new scheme for Tewkesbury called Thank You for Keeping me Safe. This scheme was launched originally by officers from Stonehouse police station. We are looking to launch this scheme initially in Tewkesbury Church of England School in March 2014. It will then be rolled out across all schools in Tewkesbury. The scheme is similar to Kiddicops and involves students of the school supported by the local policing team and staff handing out postcards to parents either thanking them for parking safely or asking them to be more considerate. It is anticipated that this will have more impact than simply issuing tickets. Tickets will of course be issued where necessary. This priority will continue until the next meeting on 7th May 2014.

  • Area:Tewkesbury Community
  • Priority:*Updated - Education of the local business in Tewkesbury Town Centre in relation to the prevention of shoplifting offences and crime prevention advice
  • Action:
    • Increased directed patrols and operations running in the area
    • Introduction of a Shop Watch Scheme
  • You Said We Did:
    The Tewkesbury Local Policing Team is responsible for this priority. Over the last three months the team has been regularly conducting high visibility patrols in the Town centre. The team organised Operation Base, which ran during the Christmas period and was aimed at tackling the usual festive increase in shoplifting offences. A large part of the action agreed to tackle this priority was to educate retailers and provide crime prevention advice. Almost all of the retailers were visited in order to carry out crime prevention surveys. Tewkesbury Local Policing team were very keen to set up a Shop Watch meeting in partnership with the local retailers in order to share information about local criminals committing thefts in Tewkesbury. Three meetings have been held so far and we have some way to go to ensure that the scheme is fully effective and that all retailers are committed. Shoplifting offences had fallen by 27% compared with the previous three months, although we agreed that we would continue with this priority over the next three months and update at the next meeting.

News

Residents encouraged to report cases of dog fouling

Residents frustrated with dog owners allowing their pets to foul in public areas without picking it up are being encouraged to report cases to their local borough council.

Tewkesbury Borough Council and Gloucestershire Police have received a number of complaints about the issue in recent months, and are encouraging residents to report cases so action can be taken.

The borough council does not have a dog warden but it has powers to enforce the Dog Fouling of Land Act, which means if a member of the public witnesses a dog owner not picking up their dog’s mess, and is willing to provide a witness statement, it can prosecute the owner, which can lead to a fine of up to £1000.

The message from the two authorities is that if a resident witnesses dog mess being left in a public area, they should get in touch with the borough council’s Environmental Health team, which will review the evidence provided and establish if a prosecution is appropriate.

In addition to being unsightly and smelly, dog mess is unsafe for humans or dogs as it can cause Toxocarasis – a disease that can cause permanent loss of sight, which is particularly dangerous to children. 

Tewkesbury Borough Council’s Lead Member for Clean and Green Environment Cllr Jim Mason said: “Most dog owners are very responsible and clear up after their dogs properly but there is a minority that don’t.  There are around 360 dog bins in Tewkesbury Borough but unfortunately there is a minority of dog walkers who choose to leave the mess on the floor. It’s not fair on anyone, particularly children who are especially vulnerable. I strongly urge all dog walkers to pick up their dog’s mess and either take it home or use one of the many dog waste bins available.

Sergeant Claire Morgan said: "We're sure no one in the community wants to live or work in an area that is strewn with this kind of mess, which is why we're asking residents to help us tackle the problem.  We'd also like to remind dog owners to be responsible and tidy up after their pet." 

As well as reporting individual cases, residents are encouraged to contact their local town or parish council about dog bins if they feel an area may benefit from one.
