Police and Council Street Surgery Planned

A street surgery is planned for residents of Rustat Road, Argyle Street and William Smith Close from 6pm on Wednesday 4th March, outside Northfield's Stores on Greville Road.

The local antisocial behaviour officer, police officer, housing officer, city ranger and fire safety officer have been invited as well as ward councillors. Coleridge Conservatives intend to be there.

The police and city council have organised the surgery to give people a chance to meet officers and discuss any issues. In particular it's a chance to talk about crime, antisocial behaviour, fly-tipping and environmental improvements.

There was an intention to hold a meeting between councillors and the police to discuss how to deal with recent waves of crime in this area, and extending eastwards through the ward. We hope, excepting the possibility of a miracle solution arising at the street surgery, that the surgery will not be a substitute for that meeting.
