Anti-Social Behaviour

We have had 13 incidents reported to us regarding ASB within the Bramley and Sherfield area. As we are all most aware the weather is rather hot at the moment, if you are planning on having parties among friends please be considerate to your neighbours but do enjoy the sun while it’s still here.

Now that schools have broken up, colleges and secondary school older youths are now out and about, please don’t hesitate if you have problems later on the evening with them around park areas. Especially if they are playing loud music, drinking, smoking etc.

There have been a number of reports of young people hanging around Garside, Beckett Gardens and Northfield smoking cannabis and being generally noisy. We are aware and are dealing with individuals related. Frequent patrols will be carried out on an evening to try and aide the issue alongside working with partner agencies from Basingstoke and Deane Council and Housing Associations.

Please make sure you report these not only to 101 but also your HA if relevant or BDBC to allow them to get a better picture. Noise complaints should be reported to Environmental Health at BDBC.

Search “Immobilise” online (immobilise) to register your pedal cycles, electronic devices and property so that the Police can identify anything found in future.

Please ensure your out-buildings and vehicles are locked and secured to prevent theft. Avoid keeping valuables in out-buildings and vehicles where possible.

Please consider installing CCTV and alarms in order to protect your property. This also assists Police with investigations.

Do not leave your garage or car doors unlocked, even while you are in the property. Opportunist thieves have been known to operate in the area.
