Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
(Police ref: NL6204) Groups or individuals who are in the main walking to and from the Loughborough Students Union from their properties within the student residential areas, predominantly the roads which run off the Main Ashby Road and through the Kingfisher Estate. Some of these are causing noise nuisance, which is referred to as Transient noise, such as singing and talking loudly. This coincides with the link with these groups or individuals drinking alcohol as they are making their way to the Students Union. Identified times are Wednesday and Friday evenings between 2200-0200. Our aim for this problem solving plan is to encourage the local residents to report the issues they are experiencing, which will provide us with accuracy and clarity of the actual problem rather than working off anecdotal evidence.
Issued: March 2018
What we are doing:With the end of the academic year, we are reviewing our current PSP. A lot of work has been conducted around transient noise during this period, including extra police patrols during the key times. Partnership working with the Students Union and University with ensuring extra Street Support are out at the key times, to remind students to be quiet when walking to and from the students Union. We ran a lolly Pop initiative in conjunction with the University and Students Union which seemed to be well received, These were Lollypops which were handed out by the Students Union Exec and volunteers at the end of a night, which has encouraged students to be quite when walking home. Having officers out at the key times has meant that 275 alcohol seizures have been conducted since the Transient noise project started, and a number of people have been given formal warnings under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Police Act 2014 for causing transient noise. We are looking at re-running the community consultations over the next couple of weeks.
