The meeting, held at Ditchingham Primary School, received an update from the team and partner agencies about the work that had been carried out to tackle previous problems raised by local residents.
Over the past three months, the team had patrolled Mallard Close on 124 separate occasions to help tackle anti-social behaviour in the area. One motorcycle was seized under anti-social behaviour regulations and resident relocated. Quantities of alcohol and drugs had been seized by team members from youths in the vicinity. Police are continuing to work closely with South Norfolk District Council to set up a local 'users group' and provide a youth shelter in Chedgrave.
To tackle anti-social behaviour in Church Plain, the team had carried out a total of 191 separate patrols. Alcohol was seized from youths on a number of occasion and the youngsters made to clear up their own litter. The team continues to support Loddon Youth Club and work towards the provision of a youth shelter.
The team has worked closely with South Norfolk District Council to address the issue of Bramerton Common being misused by cyclists. Individuals responsible for causing damage were identified and directed to make repairs. The council is in the process of identifying suitable land to be converted into a cycle track for public use.
