Delivering our 2011 Manifesto (Crime and Anti Social Behaviour)

Posted by davidburbage on April 11, 2015

Stormtroopers

Continuing the series looking at the successful delivery of our 2011 manifesto, here’s what we did on Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour. ( . . . all achieved without stormtroopers)

Increase the number of Community Wardens to 18

We’ve had 18 Full Time Equivalent wardens on staff since December 2014.

Extend warden powers further

Wardens now enforce litter, graffiti, fly tipping, dog fouling and others. In 2014/5 we’ve issued 300 litter notices, keeping the Borough Tidy!

Focus support to residents who experience anti-social behaviour, improving the response time for resolution of problems

39% reduction in response times since our commitment was made.

Provide an effective mechanism for resolution of neighbour disputes

An improved protocol has resulted in a reduction in the number of neighbourhood disputes, and difficult cases have been dealt with.

Provide an out-of-hours service for a range of urgent council functions when offices are closed

New support for unauthorised planning issues, late night noise and dangerous structures introduced.

Increase the recruitment of special constables in collaboration with the Thames Valley Police

700 Specials recruited in the Thames Valley Police

Increase CCTV

New cameras installed at Clarence Road, Stafferton Way and Maidenhead Road.

Allow licensing decisions to be taken by local councillors answerable to their electorate

Extending the pool of councillors to a legal maximum, now decisions are able to be taken by more local respresentatives

Campaign to keep local police stations open and ensure better resident access at existing stations

Support for joint working with the police has meant proposals for Windsor are being worked through, and Ascot Police station has been reopened with volunteer support. Parking spaces have been provided outside Maidenhead Police station.
