Penistone - at the September PACT meeting held at St Johns Community Centre the following issue was raised and created as a PACT priority:
Inconsiderate Parking - vehicles causing obstruction to pavements to prevent pedestrians/pushchairs/motorabilty scooters from accessing the pavement.
Parking outside local schools, at pick up and drop off times.
It is our aim in to increase patrols within the Penistone Wards with a specific focus on parking issues. We aim to locate vehicles causing an issue, speak with owners and offer them words of advice. If the issue continues SYP will work alongside BMBC to take enforcement action.
We will be working alongside the local community and business, to educate residents and visitors to area on how to park safely.
We will be undertaking a week of action alongside local schools, to work with parents re parking and keeping their own children safe. We will be asking schools to share this on their newsletters, and we will be promoting on Social Media.
We will be reviewing the PACT priority at the next meeting on 14th December 2022.
Barnsley West - at the September PACT meeting held at Warren Quarry Community Centre the following issue was raised and created as a PACT priority:
Anti-Social Behaviour in the Stairfoot Ward - local residents highlighted a rise in ASB in the Kendray area, mainly around 5ives Football pitches, the local park and school. The behaviour of this group of youths is having a negative impact on the local community. They are unable to use the park area due to the damage caused to the equipment.
We plan to tackle the ASB at this location by joint working with BMBC, SYFR and Barnsley Academy. We will be undertaking joint patrols, to locate and identify the youths. Once identified enforcement action will be taken.
To prevent/stop the behaviour happening again we will also be looking at long term engagement/diversionary activities.
We will be reviewing the PACT priority at the next meeting on 20th October 2022.
