Hi Serenity - pretty tied to the permit parking issue for the time being.

All we can ask is that incidents get reported to the police where crimes have been committed. That way they can keep track of what resource needs to be allocated.

I'm a bit confused Oliver just recieved a leaflet that initially I thought was from the conservatives but it turned out to be from someone called Sue Carroll, who to be honest I've never heard of before.

She clearly stated in the leaflet that the barrier has already been approved and that she was also supporting the local residents of Mount Pleasant and Neville Street to implement resident parking. She did include you and Julian but after her name first.

She also asked for the public to contact her if there are any pot holes that neede reporting.

I can't help but feel that this leaflet is slightly miss leading as at first glance you'd think that she was already a councillor with all the things listed in the leaflet seemingly attributed to her. And asking the public to contact her about the pot holes seemed to further imply that she had some influence that an ordinary member of the public wouldn't have.

And as for support local residents about residents parkjng we've never even heard of her.

But back to the barrier what is actually going on Oliver.Has it been approved or not.

Oh and whilst in the leaflet it spoke about the resurfacing schedule to include London Road can i ask which part Oliver. And if we're talking about pot holes and resurfacing what about Bramhall Moor Lane that's a road that's long overdue and badly in need of resurfacing.

Sue is the Conservative Candidate for Hazel Grove in the Local Elections this year. Sadly local election candidates don't get the promotion compared with General Election candidates but she has been out meeting hundreds if not thousands of residents. I am more than happy to arrange for her to come and see you if you like?

Sue has been helping me with some projects in Hazel Grove and has been contacted by many residents to assist with their problems - just like I did when I was a candidate. We all have to start somewhere!

Green Lane barrier is approved - we are just wanting the parking situation progressed before we proceed to implementation. I may have mentioned this before.

The section will be between Torkington & Chester - firmer dates will be released in due course but it has been added to the programme of works.

Bramhall Moor Lane, I don't disagree but lion share of it is in Stepping Hill Ward which means I don't have 100% of the say. Unfortunately we are having to fight for every road in our areas at the moment because of the ludicrous way the Highways Investment Programme was designed.

Let me know about meeting Sue - she is quite formidable but very nice all the same :)

Thanks for filling in the details about the barrier and the parking for residents and yes you did mention it before. Sorry I just thought that the barrier had not been approved until more antisocial behaviour had been logged. Think I got the wrong end of the stick.

As for formidable Carol ...thanks for the offer Oliver but I think that I'll hold fire, But no doubt we'll be hearing more from the formidable Carol in the future, one way or another.

No the barrier is definitely going in - just a matter of timing.

Your loss, Serenity. If you change your mind, just drop me a line.

Hi Oliver,

Directing this directly to you, as I received a Conservative flyer stating you and someone else are working closely with residents on anti-social behavior on this road and others. Whilst I see your comments on here, I see no action, so feel the flyer is misleading.

There has been an increased and now persistence level of ASB in the car park but specifically the hut. Car's skidding until all hours, older teens and 20+ year old's most nights from 7pm - late with music, drugs, beer. Graffiti on the hut, kicking it and pulling off the guttering, littering and urinating against it (like the Lynx taxi drivers). I have seen one PCSO take some beer off them in 6 months!!!!, but not move them on. The fact that the hut is now attracting older kids/adults every night means this is not a school age kids issue, but serious levels of ASB (as they feel safe and untouchable) as no police presence or deterrent from the council. I see a lot of talk on here about the barrier, that stops the skidding cars, but what about the drugs and booze around the hut? The paving all around the hut needs to go, as this provides perfect shelter. The entrance side needs a camera or a regular patrol, once an hour, not just a every now and then, in the early evening.

The volume of the youths has now led to some trespassing in gardens and in car ports to shelter from the rain and drink/deal drugs there. I appreciate trespass is a civil and not criminal matter but it all falls into ASB in my opinion.

I feel taking credit in printed literature is a far stretch from the reality and to state you have engaged with residents is certainly not true on Green Lane, this forum does not count unless everyone on this thread is a resident and I see no local activity from you or your party to resolve this.

What is the short term planning (time scales for this) and the long term plan. To tie it into a money spinning exercise based on residents parking schemes in surrounding roads, to appease hospital staff (as it makes no difference to how parking is today for residents) is not a good enough answer.

I have to agree Oliver that there's been a lot said but nothing done. I realise that you are still relatively new to the post but these issues were highlighted to William many years ago.

I have said on here a few times that I would be only to happy to meet with other residents (that you or Carol have spoken to)to try to outline the ASB issues and to offer my support in looking for ways to resolve them. But you have said that you are meeting residents on a one to one basis only at the moment. So perhaps now might be a good time to come round and ask residents again for their views or post some literature to see if we can all get together to sort the problems out.

I do feel that the whole area needs looking at, as there are so many knock on problems that effect negatively on this area, from ASDAs open fencing, that allows litter to just blow stright through onto nearby roads and passageways, causing unnecessary littering, to the observations made from slight return about the Lynx taxi drivers parked on the park and the drivers urinating, using the shed as a toilet.
.

In the instant of the taxis, it wasn't that long ago I outlined exactly the same issue but instead of the park they were waiting for fares in the ASDA car park, whilst leaving their car engines running pumping out car fumes, directly outside people's homes, and again using nearby entries as their toilets and litter bins..

So it would now appear that since nearly a year ago that all that has happened is that this particular ASB issue has just moved from one end of the road to the other.

And as for ASDA litter and fumes issues I have personally contacted the manager aand estates department at ASDA and outlined the issues, and asked if they could replace the open fencing with solid fencing, At the time they seemed keen to help reslove the problem but years later nothing still has been done to rectify the problem. And so it just continues fumes and litter.

So what with the fumes, empty lager cans thrown down our entries and into our gardens, we also have to put up with empty sandwich packages and carrier bags blowing down the road and ending up being caught up in the bushes and trees of the park. Ridiculous when you think that thelse issues could so easy be helped by simply replacing the open fencing with solid fencing.

I recently walked down the Fred Perry walkway that is adjacent to the asda car park and it was full of cigarette ends from where asda use blowers to blow their rubbish into the nearby passage and then say that it's nothing to do with them the litter. JUST NOT FAIR.

I know that the council are slow to act Oliver until they feel that they have all the information that they need, But all these issues are not new to this area and have been going on for years and years and years..

Yes absolutely these are not new issues - probably not a question for me as to why they haven't been acted upon. A resident contacted me and now things have and are happening.

The barrier design and funding have been agreed. The issue preventing us from installing the barrier is waiting for the permit schemes to be in place on surrounding roads. This was agreed when the proposal for the barrier came forward. This should be complete by the summer and we are keeping on top if it.

One thing I cannot do anything about is the legal and regulatory procedures the Council has to go through to implement permit schemes.
