THE FIRST MEETING of the East Riding Council-led Holderness Area Community Partnership met recently and the notes from it have been published.
The meeting was attended by 6 people representing the East Riding Council, Humberside Police and HWRCC (Humber & Wolds Rural Community Council). There were 7 observers present – mostly local government representatives.
Issues discussed, included:
- The demolition of the Hut on Draper’s Lane Playing Field in Hedon following incidents of arson.
- A reported increase in anti-social behaviour on Inmans Estate in Hedon which will be assessed through ‘plain-clothed’ patrols.
- The launch of ‘Shop Watch’ in Hedon – apparently some shops have been resistant to joining the scheme.
- Authorities wanting to relax ‘controlled drinking zones’ for Diamond Jubilee celebrations should write to Inspector Mark Coulthard at Hedon Police Station.
- Metal theft remains a problem in the area and Inspector Coulthard is the police divisional contact for this issue.
- A proposal is being investigated to put a play area on Preston Playing Fields.
- The Youth Club in Keyingham is now up-and-running.
HU12 comments: It would seem that these meetings are a great opportunity to collect and share information about what’s going on in the area. If this is the case, then perhaps these notes should contain more information about highlighted initiatives and contact details for responsible officers?
