vote illegal parking and drug dealing as top police priorities
dealing and illegal parking have this week been chosen by Highbridge
residents as the top two priorities for police to tackle in the
town over the next three months.
residents attended this week's quarterly police community meeting
in Highbridge's St John Ambulance Hall, as pictured above, where
those present discussed which issues should be treated as 'public
enemy number one' by police.
raised a number of concerns including cold calling, fly tipping,
safety at the Highbridge Hotel, dog fouling, littering, illegal
motorbike use and general anti-social behaviour.
after a vote was taken, drug dealing in the town centre and car
parking issues along Church Street, Grange Avenue and Market Street
were picked as the top two.
Ian Kennett told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We very much appreciate
the involvement of those who attended and will be tackling these
two issues as priorities. Drug dealing has a big impact on communities
and it is in everyone's interests to see it removed."
Burnham-On-Sea community police meeting will be held at 7pm on
Thursday August 4th at Burnham Community Centre in Berrow Road.
