We will continue to act upon community intelligence in relation to the use and supply of drugs.

Ward Area – Morley North

Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) by children and off road motorbikes is the most commonly raised issue in the Morley North ward at the moment.  In particular, the locations of note are Drighlington Rugby Club building and the surrounding grounds, most often when it is closed.  We are conducting patrols in the area and stop checks.  We will deal with them as we find them and positive action will be taken against any committing offences.  This includes working with partner agencies from Leeds City Council and Housing Associations for a joint approach at tackling repeat problem persons.

Gildersome is a main arterial route used also by pedestrians and residential traffic alike. We are still receiving some reports of speeding and HGV wagons breaching weight limits for the roads.   We have officers trained in the deployment of approved speed measuring devices.  We have been and will continue to deploy such officers in these areas of concern, at the relevant times as identified from community reports and intelligence for speeding. We will enforce the speed limit where there is a persistent problem and advise where there is an emerging, lower problem with minor breaches.  Also, HGV vehicles shown to be using a route as a cut through (not there to deliver in the village) will be dealt with as found by officers, where operational commitments allow..  We are liaising with other partner agencies to assess the routes for their suitability for engineering and road design solutions to try and design these problem out as much as reasonably possible. 

There have been some ASB issues that have arisen in the Churwell Park area, namely the riding of off-road motorcycles in the area. We have officers patrolling the area when they can and they will deal with what they find.  We are planning to run an operation to tackle this issue that we have used successfully in other areas of the District.  We will look to implement this as soon as staffing and operational commitments allow.

Ward Area – East Ardsley and Robin Hood

To target and take appropriate action against anti-social use of vehicles in and around the Tingley area paying particular attention to specific roads highlighted by community intelligence.  We will conduct regular traffic operations including the use of speed measuring equipment to provide road safety advice and prosecute offenders using Road Traffic legislation and, if appropriate, consider the use of Section 59 Police Reform Act warnings and seizures for the more deliberate and serious offences.
