Illegal parkers now being nicked in Murton Slade

Monday, 24th June 2013.

Police have begun issuing tiickets to motorists parking illegally in Murton Slade, as part of the latest priorities chosen by the public.

Residents selected the parking issue in the walkway between Queen Street and Tesco as one of three priorities at a recent Safer neighbourhood Team public forum.

Police are still in discussion with Suffolk County Council about the regulations in force in that area, but have made a start on neighbouring Murton Slade, right outside the police station.

PC Will Wright of the SNT said they began by issuing warning notices and werte now issuing tickets.

Progress has also been made on another priority, anti-social behaviour in the area of Osier Place. Police, Suffolk County Council, St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Havebury Housing have met to seek a solution.

Lighting has been improved and hedging cut back in Upper Downs Slade, the path behind Osier Place, and patrols have been increased in the evenings.

Work continues on the third priority, inconsiderate parking by parents delivering and collecting children in School Lane, but PC Wright said this was really down to the parents to take some responsibility and not be lazy.

Issues surrounding the fallout from drinking of alcohol on the Recreation Ground, which were taken on as a sort of fourth priority have been subsumed into the police's core work.

PC Wright said they did not have the resources for four priorities and could not discharge any until the public had agreed at the next meeting in September.
