Neighbourhood priorities

We asked, You Said, We did

How we have addressed the local issues you raised with us.

WE ASKED

What concerns you about your neighbourhood?

YOU SAID

A part of Seatonville Road in Monkseaton is being used by drivers as a short cut in the mornings causing a danger to road users, pedestrians and school children.

WE DID

  • The local Neighbourhood Beat Manager has liaised with local residents and North Tyneside Council about the problem.

  • North Tyneside Council has erected signs on Seatonville Road informing road users that it is not a through road.

  • The local Neighbourhood Beat Manager has increased patrols around the area resulting in a number of motorists being warned about ignoring traffic signs. Repeat offenders have been reported for the offence and consideration is being given to taking them to court.

  • Residents have contacted the police to offer their thanks for the continued effort and support of the Neighbourhood Policing Team in addressing the issue.

WE ASKED

What concerns you about your neighbourhood?

YOU SAID

There is an increase in juvenile disorder in Marden Quarry. 

WE DID

  • The Neighbourhood Policing Team has increased high visibility patrols in the Quarry aimed at deterring people from behaving in an anti-social way and reassuring those residents who enjoy the area socially.

  • This will stay as a priority patrol area particularly for the Community Support Officers.

  • There has been a recent reduction in calls relating to the Quarry in relation to anti-social behaviour.

  • As a result of extra police patrols two youths have been arrested in the area for possession of drugs.

WE ASKED

What concerns you about your neighbourhood?

YOU SAID

Litter around Whitley Bay town centre in the areas of South Parade and the Promenade, particularly over the weekend period. 

WE DID

  • Joint patrols were conducted by Sgt Mal Wallace and local authority staff to assess this matter resulting in more stringent cleaning practices being adopted.

  • Owners of town centre bars have also been sent letters advising them of this issue and reinforcing the need for premises to monitor cleaning methods around their own business.
