MATTERS DISCUSSED AT THE MEETING:

  1. Updates from Previous Meeting
  1. Longbridge Connectivity – Cllr Clancy  single issue concerns raised at previous meeting had been dealt with.
  2. Buses Parking outside Sainsbury – proposal to move buses to alternative area after dropping passengers had raised other issues but the problems were being explored and further update would be provided at the next meeting
  3. Thurlstone/Sunbury Roads – works could be explored through the minor works budget but there were also other options that were being looked into. Difficulties with turning onto Longbridge Lane from Sunbury Road were highlighted and also access into Central Avenue due to speeding cars and during busy times cars blocking the junction. Yellow box markings or similar traffic management measures were requested. Cllr O’Reilly referred to the Longbridge Consultative Group and undertook to look at a meeting being arranged to consider the free flow of traffic around the area.  In response to reference to the audible warning on the pedestrian lights at Coombes Lane/Turves Green/ Longbridge Lane not working Councillor Clancy undertook to report to officers.
  1. Police Update

Sergeant Lamerton provided the following up date;

  • Recent stabbings – assurance given that this was not an issue for the area and had involved people from outside the area. Licensing division was seeking a Closure Order and video footage and CCTV was available to assist. 
  • Street Watch – more patrols had been recruited but volunteers could register via the Police website or through Sgt Lamerton
  • In response to concerns raised about drug use on Tessall Lane  & around the station Sgt Lamerton advised patrols had been sent to the area but nothing had been witnessed. Longbridge Neighbourhood Team had also confirmed that they had not encountered issues in that area. However they remained vigilant and had closed down a cannabis farm and were working with West Mercia on a number of drug related issues along with the college and BCC Housing.
  • Knife bin, Northfield – Sgt Lamerton to liaise with Sgt Fryer 
  • Visit by Home Secretary to Northfield – in response to concerns raised regarding the lack of community representation at the recent visit the meeting was advised that the agenda for the visit had been set by the Home Secretary during a visit to meet the PCC and Police Constable. The visit to Northfield had been an impromptu stop for him to meet people on the street and there had not therefore been time to arrange for groups to join in. Residents asked that the PCC be invited to Longbridge & West Heath to speak to the community. Councillor O’Reilly u
