I have been to various streets in the Walridge village area where parking complaints have been received to assess the way residents are parking to ensure their are no obstructions. I have also conducted letter drops in the area in order to ask residents to park their vehicles considerately for others. If everyone works together to tackle the parking issues there can be a mutual resolution.
Over the last 3 month I have worked in partnership alongside Durham County Council Street Wardens, the council ASB Officer and housing associations to tackle the ASB in the area. We have issued 15 warning letters to youths who have been involved in ASB activity and also conducted joint visits along with parents present to speak to youths about their behaviour. We will continue to work in partnership with various agencies to make sure anti-social behaviour is tackled positively in Chester-le-Street and surrounding areas.
Carry out high visibility patrols throughout the area particularly on evenings and weekends.
Take details of those person(s) caught in the area when ASB is reported.
Carry out re-visits and call backs to victims of ASB.
Visit schools and carry out home visits in front of parents for those youths involved.
Work in partnership with Durham County Council so that we also have Street Wardens on patrol in the area as well as the local Policing Team.
