Inconsiderate Parking & Tesco Car Park Landscaping

The Parish Council have now agreed with the previous owners of the Tesco Car Park for Landscaping Works to be carried out during February.

There are ongoing parking issues in both car parks. The Tesco car park is owned by the Parish Council and the Mortons Car Park is owned by DHMC, with neither organisation presently having enforcement powers. Car parks are tightly regulated, and to resolve these problems a managed scheme is being proposed. This managed scheme would cover both car parks, and other private parking in the central area, with all the necessary signage and marking to better regulate use.

Note. A new directly elected Board for the central area estate will shortly be taking over control of DHMC and the management policy from the Receivers. Once this is in place, the managed scheme for car parking can be taken forward, and will hopefully go some way to improving the parking problems.

Enforcing Disabled Parking is key; I’m sick and tired of not being able to use disabled spaces because inconsiderate people are parking in them without having badges etc.

Hopefully something will be put in place to stop people parking in front of the barrier on the Tesco side. It makes it difficult for people to get out and on occasions two cars have parked across it completely blocking everyone in.

Anti-Social Behaviour

Concern has been raised over anti-social behaviour on the Village Green, in the Village Centre and in underground car parks. This has ranged from eggs thrown at homes, cars and bikes damaged, new bins and benches being deliberately fire damaged, to items and broken glass in the playground. Dickens Heath Management Company currently carry out a 24 hour security CCTV monitoring role in the central area, along with patrols at night that check the car parks are secure. Any incidents are reported to the police and security will move on trespassers in the car park areas. Security patrol checks all gated car parks are secure unless awaiting repair. Neither the Parish Council nor DHMC have any enforcement powers with regard to ASB and rely on Police back-up when called.

Residents are strongly urged to call the Police on 101 to record all ASB occurrences.

We were informed on the local Fb group (by a resident) that any instances should ‘also’ be reported to yourselves on top of logging with security and 101 - as you were liaising with the police over concerns… is this the case, or not?
