Tackling knife crime and drugs: Inspector Walker announced 3 more warrants executed in the last 3 weeks.
Operation Sceptre and under-age knife sales: one premise found to have made such a sale during a recent exercise.
B.T. phone boxes: cos the InLink alternative proposed by B.T. enables phone calls, it’s not clear how they solve the problems caused in The Meadows. Concerns remain over phone boxes at Arkwright Walk by the sports centre, Queens Walk by the former toll bridge; Wilford Crescent West and Launder Street.
Meadows Police rest room: to be opened up and used in London Road fire station from Monday.
New parking lines to support parking permits and improved visibility on Robin Hood Way: painting takes place in the weeks of 12th and 19th November; this means invitations for residents to apply for permits will go out next week.
Leen Gate cycle route: part along Riverside Way is being implemented now; surprisingly, there still a perception that it costs to park on Victoria Embankment when the RingGo scheme means it is free (you can be charged 20p for a confirmation message but that can be avoided).
Victoria Embankment parking: works for putting new bollards and fencing started today; all the extra signs. to inform people not to park on the grass are erected and the signs are to be enforced straight away.
