The following comments were made/issues raised:-

 

·         It was proposed that consideration be given to the installation of a camera to monitor the breach of the ‘no entry sign’ on Egerton Road North and at the junction of Ellesmere Road North. In response it was commented that it would be looked at within the Police Authority.

·         It was commented that the quality of driving along the A6 between Manchester Road junction and the Manchester boundary has been reckless within recent times.

·         Members thanked the Police for their ongoing support and efforts to deal with numerous complaints and concerns within the local community as well as attending community group meetings.

·         Residents’ concerns were raised relating to speeding around the Heatons and Reddish areas and whether it was possible for mobile cameras to be placed in various locations around the wards to act as a deterrent. It was also commented that the criteria for installing these cameras were quite difficult to meet and if consideration could be given by the Police Force Command to ‘relax’ the criteria to assist with the speeding in the area. In response, it was stated that speeding complaints were being looked at by the Police and local residents were encouraged to continue to lodge their complaints via the Heatons and Reddish police inbox. These would then be collated by the police admin officers and sent to the relevant officers for action.

·         It was commented that off-road bikes, speeding bicycles on pavements and e-scooters were a concern for local residents. In response, it was reported that the police were aware of the concerns and were looking into specialist support to deal with the off-road bikes. The public were encouraged to report to the police about where the off-road bikes were being stored so warrants could be issued accordingly.

·         Residents’ concerns were also raised regarding Denby Lane and the ‘weight limit’ on the narrow road which was continuously being ignored by larger vehicles using that lane through the day and night to make deliveries to supermarkets.

·         It was commented that moped enabled robberies had been taking place across Stockport with information being shared on social media by the police. ‘Operation Luster’ was taking place in response to the robberies with the divisional team making some arrests with proactive action being taken in the Stockport area.

·         It was stated that members of the public should be contacting “Crimestoppers” or dialling ‘101’ anonymously if they prefer to report any crimes or complaints relating to speeding in the borough.

·         Members thanked the police for their donations towards litter picking equipment for the Reddish South ward which had been put to good use in the parks and streets.

·         Local residents were encouraged to submit applications to the “Aris Fund” which was a fund that had been taken off criminals under the “Proceeds of Crimes Act” which could be put back into the community.

 

Inspector Val North informed the Area Committee that the following activities had taken place in the Heatons and Reddish area: -
