The Bradley Stoke Safer and Stronger Community Group meets on Tuesday (12th April) at Baileys Court Activity Centre, Baileys Court Road (7pm start).
The group allows residents to work together with the police, fire service, health service and councils to improve the local community and have a say about the services they receive.
This month’s meeting will review progress on priority issues identified at the January meeting:
- Speeding in Woodlands Lane
- Action: Publicise Community Speedwatch to encourage more volunteers
- Anti-social behaviour in the Leisure Centre car park
- Action: South Glos Council to liaise with Leisure Trust management to try to have the car park secured at night
- Hate Crime
- Action: Police to liaise with residents about further community engagement work to encourage victims to report incidents
The Woodlands Lane speeding problem looks likely to be a talking point after a speed check in February and March showed that 85% of vehicles were travelling faster than 35mph in an area where the legal speed limit is 30mph.
Residents are encouraged to raise new topics and a new set of priority issues will be agreed at the end of the meeting.
The regular proceedings will be followed at 8pm by an interactive workshop on local crime and community sentencing by Avon and Somerset Probation Trust. The interactive presentation will be delivered by a local Magistrate and a member of probation staff.
