TEN youths found to be involved in incidents of anti-social behaviour in the Magdalen area have been issued with behaviour contracts.

TEN youths found to be involved in incidents of anti-social behaviour in the Magdalen area have been issued with behaviour contracts.

The contracts have been issued as a result of increased patrols by officers from the local Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) in the Shrublands Estate after it was identified as a priority by the local community.

It was identified that a high number instances of anti-social behaviour were occurring in Elder Green and Magnolia Green and 10 youths were identified as being involved in incidents.

They have all been issued with Acceptable Behaviour Contracts with conditions on their movements and who they can associate with. A youth has also been issued with a caution for starting a fire.

The results were revealed during a priority setting meeting of the Magdalen SNT where panel members received updates on the priorities on anti-social behaviour on Shrublands Estate, inconsiderate parking on Elmhurst Court and illegal parking at Magdalen Way shops.

High visibility patrols have been carried out to curb parking problems on the estate - particularly around school times and early evening in the Elmhurst Road area when parking became a problem.

A number of drivers have been warned and several have been issued with advisory notices, while residents in the area said the problem had reduced as a result of increased patrols.

Targeted patrols on Magdalen Way have resulted in several motorists being issued with fixed penalty notices for illegal parking and more than 30 warning letters have been sent to motorists reminding them of parking regulations.

The meeting heard illegal parking in the area had been reduced as a result, and new priorities focusing on anti-social behaviour on Shrublands Way, speeding on Crab Lane and anti-social behaviour on Elmhurst Court were agreed.

The next priority setting meeting will be held on August 5 and anyone wanting to contact the Magdalen SNT can call 0845 456 4567 or email sntmagdalen@norfolk.pnn.police.uk.
