The Chairman introduced Marilyn Davies, Community Safety Manager, S.B.C.

 

Marilyn informed that she had visited Ingleby Barwick Parish Council and other Parish and Town Councils, in the summer of 2001 to present the findings of the Crime and Disorder Audit and responses to this helped to develop the Community Safety Plan that covers 2002-2005.

It was noted that the Crime and Disorder Magazine is produced every three years and it was delivered to every door in the Borough in July 2004.  Included in the magazine was a survey to be filled in and returned by 12th October 2004.

It is vital that they get the views of as many residents as possible so that the next Community Safety Plan that will be produced in April 2005 reflects the concerns and aspirations of the residents of the Borough.  It is hoped that the Parish Council will help them with their aim.

 

Chairman…………………………….

                                                                                                                        4 of 18

 

Marilyn outlined the variation in crime levels across the Borough and noted that the dwelling burglaries in Ingleby Barwick were less than half the Borough average.

It was noted that Ingleby Barwick is the second most popular place to live, behind Bishopsgarth, which came top in 2003/2004.

The last three months crime figures for Ingleby Barwick were noted, with theft and car crime proportionally high.

It was noted that there is a small element of youths causing a significant amount of crime and disorder, which is being dealt with.

 

It was raised with Marilyn that the current trend of changing garages into habitable rooms was leading to more on-street parking, which could be contributing to the ease of theft from vehicles etc.

Marilyn informed that as part of the clause in the Crime and Disorder Act, every section of the Council should consider crime when making decisions, however Planning are governed by regulations, which cannot be changed at present.  It was noted that Safer Stockton Partnership would liaise with Planning on the matter and hopefully look at the wider picture.

 

Marilyn highlighted the high incidence of 2 in 1 crimes, which entails breaking into the house and taking the car keys. 

It was noted that this type of crime is being brought to the attention of the public to be aware of and in particular, leaving valuables in vehicles, vehicles being left open etc.

 

It was raised that cars parking on pavements causing an obstruction to pedestrians is increasing and it was suggested that the Community Wardens could maybe put a leaflet on vehicles, highlighting the owners to the problem.

 

Concerns were raised regarding the lack of facilities in Ingleby Barwick, with particular regard to youths.

Marilyn outlined problems in the whole of the Borough and noted that financial restraints and finding leaders to man schemes was difficult.

 

It was commented that the Police and Community Wardens, as well as home security, help keep crime levels low in Ingleby Barwick.

 

The Chairman thanked Marilyn for her attendance.

 

59. INGLEBY BARWICK COMMUNITY WARDENS.

It was noted that an article titled ‘Disillusioned’ referring to an incident involving Ingleby Barwick Community Wardens, had appeared in the Autumn 2004 edition of Ingleby Insider.
