Safer and Stronger Group meets at Baileys Court

Safer and Stronger Community Group

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.

  1. Sadly, I missed this post as it was posted late last night and so I did not realise this meeting was being held today, though have now bookmarked the SSCG website, now I know what the SSCG is, so can get the dates in advance now.

    Has anything more been done/decided on the Part-time lighting. Having checked the Town Council website it is suspiciously silent on the matter other than to report the results of the “consultation” and there was nothing on the SSCG Agenda to indicate this was to be discussed further.

    Having read the minutes of 18th January I am looking forward to reading today’s minutes – and see if the subject has been addressed or not.

    [Note to self – get life – stop looking at council websites]

    It’s quite surprising, because it seemed the decision was made to implement this…or maybe they’re just waiting until after the local elections…
