12th July 2005 at
8.00pm in the Village Hall
Apologies received from Stephen Hackett. All other Councillors were present.
The meeting was attended by Sgt. Warren Ayres and District Councillor Isobel Seccombe, and a substantial number of households were also represented.
David Hill, Chairman, outlined the position to-date regarding anti-social behaviour in the village and said that the Police were largely aware of the situation. Following debate and information from the meeting, Sgt. Warren Ayres clarified the following:
The legal position with regard to small uninsured motorbikes on the highway involved in an accident is treated under the Road Traffic Act and where no insurance is held compensation through the courts can be pursued. Decisions are still awaited on how to deal with this type of vehicle under the Law.
Noise nuisance, whether it be loud music, vehicle noise or any other persistent noise nuisance, should be recorded with Date, Duration, Name of those offending, and sent to the Environmental Dept. Stratford District Council.
Threatening behaviour from any individual should be reported to the Police and a record kept of the incident giving Date, Time, What occurred, Who did it, Witnesses.
It was stressed by Sgt. Warren Ayres the importance of recording any anti-social incident. If there are witnesses their names and addresses should also be recorded. The Police had produced a format for recording incidents headed, “Incident Diary” and copies of this were available. Input from the community is extremely important in gathering information. When the Law is broken the Police need correct and detailed information to enable them to bring a successful prosecution when necessary.
(A form suitable for recording such incidents has been folded into the middle of this issue of the News. Ed)
There was much debate and a real concern from the meeting. The fear of what might happen was as important a factor as the incidents that had occurred. 4 crimes and 2 anti-social incidents for Oxhill had been recorded in the last 3 months. These statistics were refuted by the meeting as many more incidents had been reported to the Police. Sgt. Warren Ayres agreed to look into this.
Isobel Seccombe, District Councillor informed the meeting that Social Services, Child Support Groups along with the Police and Environmental Departments all worked closely together to find the best solutions to acts of anti-social behaviour for all the parties involved.
David Hill thanked the many people who had come along to the meeting and Sgt.Warren Ayres for giving his free time to attend, and stressed the importance of keeping the “Incidents Diary” and passing on the information to the Police. All information is treated in the strictest confidence.
