Minutes from the last meeting/updates PDF 68 KB
minutes of the previous meeting were agreed and the following
updates were provided.
Milnrow Road TRO
Parking Issues: PCSOs have attended with
Parking Service Enforcement Officers to deal with the issue of cars
parking on double yellow lines outside Mo’s Barbers.
GMP will continue to do these joint
patrols on a regular basis. Parking
Services stated that they will be attending the location four times
a day until further notice. This action
has been effective in getting vehicles to move on, however, due to
the drivers being a short distance away in the shop, they quickly
move their vehicles upon seeing enforcement action and this,
therefore, makes it difficult for tickets to be issued.
GMP will also be arranging a traffic
operation in the Newbold area in conjunction with Traffic PCSOs in
September. This action is in response
to concerns about speeding vehicles and the general manner of
driving on Milnrow Road and Newbold
Woodbine Street East and Royds
The forum previously raised concerns
about fly-tipping in the areas of Woodbine Street East and
Royds Street. The Townships Officer referred the matter on 1 June
2016 to the Council’s Environmental Management Department to
inspect and clear.
Moss Street Damaged Bollard
The forum previously raised
an issue relating to a damaged bollard to the side of Moss Street
Youth Centre. The Townships Officer
referred the matter to the Council’s Highways Department on 1
June 2016 and this bollard has now been replaced.
Newbold Metrolink Stop Criminal
The forum previously raised concerns about
break-ins/crimes at adjacent houses to the Newbold Metrolink stop. GMP
updated as follows; Officers have checked crime figures over the
past six months in the vicinity of Newbold Metrolink and there is only one burglary in close
proximity on Bertha Road and this happened overnight when the trams
weren’t running. The information
from the crime figures does not suggest any link between burglaries
and proximity to the tram stop. There
has been one criminal damage crime recorded to the tram stop and
one incident of youths on the line throwing stones from the bridge
over Milnrow Road.
Witley Road Street
The forum raised an issue with the newly installed
street lights at the Witley Road area
and why one light was situated within the crown of an adjacent
tree. The Townships Officer referred
the query on to Eon who advised a site visit was made and the tree
isn’t affecting the optical performance of the light and no
further action is needed.
Kingsway/Moss Avenue Junction Double Yellow Lines
forum raised a concern that double yellow lines may be needed on
Kingsway close to the junction of Moss Avenue. Funding was approved at Rochdale Action and
Resources Sub Committee on 28 June 2016 for a Traffic Regulation
Order at this junction.
Residents previously raised concerns about youths
throwing stones from the Metrolink
track at nearby houses and asked why are there stones placed there
but not in other places and ...

previously raised with GMP.

know anything about this new bill brought into the House of Commons
provided to residents on Councillor Brosnan’s proposed scheme of a ‘Bulky
Waste Amnesty’ for large items which will be funded from
Township Ward Funds to address the ongoing problem of fly tipping
in the ward. The scheme
