You can help choose what Haverhill Police should be focussing its resources on at the quarterly public meeting of the Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) tomorrow (Monday, March 10).
The meeting will start at 7pm at the arts centre, with groups debating their concerns before presenting them to everyone there and then voting for which three priorities ought to be adopted by the SNT.
You are now able to follow the SNT meetings and vote for your priorities via and online video stream – visit haverhillvote.co.uk/
Illegal parking in Haverhill high Street has dominated the elected priorities almost since the inception of public voting, despite police warning little can be achieved without action being taken by Suffolk County Council to address the problems with the road.
It was again chosen as a priority at the last SNT meeting in December, with Inspector Peter Ferrie saying he expected around 500 to have been given out before the SNT meeting.
“People are making the judgement that it’s better to pay £30 for a ticket rather than 30p for the car park,” he said.
Speeding on routes into the town including Duddery Hill, Chivers Road, Bergamot Road, Camps Road and the bypass was another priority.
The third was cyclists without lights at night and providing education around high visibility clothing.
