Police to crack down on parking near Place Farm school

Wednesday, 7th March 2012.

Parking in Camps Road by people dropping off or picking up children from Place Farm Primary School is to be the top priority for Haverhill police over the coming weeks.

The public meeting of Haverhill Safer Neighbourhood Team held on Monday evening at Samuel Ward Academy identified the issue as the most serious of a variety which residents brought up.

The two other priorities identified were a lack of footpath in Chalkstone Way and anti-social behaviour around the Aeroplane Park play area off the Railway Walk.

The footpath from Samuel Ward runs along Chalkstone Way as far as the new football complex, but then peters out on that side of the road.

Residents said children therefore walked in the road, causing a danger, and they wanted a footpath put in place from there to the new development at Green Road.

Members of the SNT will take the issue to Suffolk County Council and to the One Haverhill board, in search of funding, but in the meantime police will look into the road safety issues.

The Aeroplane Park issue was said to be caused by East Europeans drinking there from 8am to 4pm.

Other issues brought up were anti-social behaviour in the Park Road underpass, speeding traffic in Chalkstone Way, people feeling unsafe when street lights were turned off after midnight, speeding at the top of Wratting Road past the Fox, speeeding buses in Shetland Road, parking in the slip road of Ann Suckling Road and parking in High Street.

The threepriorities for the last quarter had all been cleared up by police, so they were discharged.

The next public meeting is on June 11 at 7pm at Days Inn.
