Longbridge Police are consulting local residents, businesses and stakeholders in a bid to tackle ongoing anti-social behaviour in a Rednal street by inviting them to a community meeting and to take part in a survey. 

For some time, antisocial behaviour has been an issue in Edgewood Road: drug use and dealing, abuse, criminal damage, antisocial use of motorbikes are just some of the problems.

So far police have targeted patrols in the area, used Antisocial Behaviour warnings and tried temporary dispersal orders, but the problems still persist.

West Midlands Police Longbridge Neighbourhood Team are now consulting local residents, business people and partners on the possibility of obtaining a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO). A PSPO applies only to a specified area and can prohibit or require certain activities if it is thought it will tackle a particular problem.

If you live in or around Edgewood Road, you are invited to attend a public meeting to discuss what has already been done, what is currently being done and what can be done in the future to tackle these issues – including a presentation from Longbridge police on what a PSPO is.

Meeting details: 

Who: Anyone who lives, works or has an interest in Edgewood Road and the surrounding area
When: 7pm Tuesday 8th August 2017
