Wilmslow West and Chorley police newsletter
August/September 2019

Wilmslow West and Chorley ward

In the world of policing, autumn is often hotly anticipated; after the busyness of the summertime it is always hoped that demand for services will cool off.
This summer particular focus has been given to reoccurring issues in the ward, ranging from neighbour issues to vehicle related offences. A big part of managing these problems is developing and analysing community intelligence, which often takes a significant amount of time. However, the availability of information is a crucial part of policing, so reporting it is always of benefit.
I and other officers recently attended the Cinema on the Carrs event held at the Carrs Park in Wilmslow. It was very pleasing to see so many people attend such a great community event and it was also good to speak to the families who visited our little stand.
Not too far away from Carrs Park, I was grateful to be invited to speak to residents of Carrs Court about issues relating to fraud. Lots of different topics were discussed, including cybercrime and doorstep salespeople. Hopefully it was as useful for the residents as it was for me – I certainly learned a lot about computers!
Looking forward to September, the reopening of schools for a new academic year will be an immediate focus of mine. There are six primary schools within the ward area and my plan is that each of these will be visited on a regular basis to assess the parking and behaviour of parents during drop-off and pick-up times (complaints are frequently received regarding these issues).
Since back-to-school time is a matter which can affect many of us in different ways, be it as parents or residents, below are some tips that may assist with the school time commute:
  • When parking, always take note of parking restrictions. Parking on school entrance markings or yellow lines can be enforced as an offence by civil enforcement officers.
  • Similarly, be conscious of parking on pavements: it is an offence to obstruct a pavement by failing to leave room for either a wheelchair or double-buggy wishing to pass, as well as preventing such users’ access to a dropped kerb.
  • Drivers should also be courteous of residents, leaving room for residents to exit driveways.
  • Engaging with arguments is never a good idea, especially in the heat of the moment. If someone is being argumentative it is always best to walk away and to not engage to prevent any potential escalation.
  • Neighbourly support can also be useful in easing traffic issues. For example, if you have a spare space on your drive, it may be possible to give a driver permission to park on there.
