There are a number of parking issues that are repeatedly reported to us around St John's.  Including parking on the white zigzags adjoined to pedestrian crossings, most notably, outside Pitmaston Park and the pedestrian crossing in St. John's.

Issued 15 April, 2018

A number of drivers have been reported for the offence of stopping within the limits of a pedestrian crossing. This will likely incur an endorsable fixed penalty notice.
Patrols will continue and positive action will be taken where necessary.

Priority

ASB reported comprises of teens gathering in the doorway of certain stores causing a nuisance to customers and staff.  Also deliberately riding their pedal cycles in a dangerous fashion in the middle of the road, putting both themselves and motorists at risk.

Issued 14 April, 2018

Action taken

New mobile working procedures have allowed for more timely and direct contact with SNT from store management when issues arise, which is proving effective.

Repeat offenders are, and will continue to be, targeted using anti social behaviour legislation with a view to progressing persistent individuals to Criminal Behaviour Orders where necessary.
