Beat team priorities

ASB Hatchett Lane/Beaufort Crescent
Agreed on 7th October 2023

There have been reports that Hatchett Lane and Beaufort Crescent are being used as a waiting area for private hire vehicles for Parkway Railway Station. There have been reports that drivers have been using bushes/over-growth as a toilet.

ASB Little Stoke Park/Meade Park
Agreed on 16th June 2023

The open areas and children’s play areas in and around Little Stoke and Stoke Gifford have had a recent increase in youth related ASB, however this appears to have culminated in an arson attack on the wooden structure in Meade Park on the 17th June 2023. This caused a large fire and has completely destroyed the play equipment.

Please report incidents via 101 or 999 if an emergency, alternative you can report through Crimestoppers which is anonymous.

Agreed on 3rd February 2023

Complaints have been received around parents parking on yellow zig-zags at school pick-up and drop-off times.

Officers will be patrolling and making contact with parents who choose to ignore the safety rules.
