4.0Review of SARA plans:
The group reviewed the current SARA plans with the following comments/decisions made:
On the notes of the last meeting it had been agreed to close this SARA plan as the incidents of ASB in Harrison Way had reduced, however this was still currently open.
Carl Bourne and Kate Croudace suggested that the plan should be closed. Kate mentioned that during August the police had logged 13 incidents of ASB for the area and none of these related to Harrison Way. The Dispersal Order, which had been in operation in Lydney and which had been amended to run until 22 January 2011 had helped to improve the situation.
Severnbanks School reported that they had had no problems during the summer months and although drug issues in the area were sometimes a problem, this was felt to be under control at the moment.
Nick Brain mentioned that the Street Wardens had reported the area quiet as well.
Decision of Group:
At the last meeting concern had been raised that bogus callers had been operating in the Alvington area.
Kate Croudace confirmed that since the last meeting PCSO Dan Wilce and PC Bob Lloyd (Crime Reduction Officer) had been in the area talking to elderly and vulnerable people to give advice and offer reassurance. There had been no more reports of bogus callers in the area.
Decision of Group:
