Policing Update

The Ipswich East Safer Neighbourhood Team updated the Committee on policing priorities for the area:

  • Regular SNT and NRT patrols took place to disrupt, detect and prevent the ongoing ASB in the Nacton area.
  • Patrols have continued in parks and open spaces to reduce ASB, drug taking and paraphernalia.
  • The NE SNT and Central SNT have worked together to combat the ASB and street drinking in Duke Street. Regular patrols will be in place.

To read further information about policing and crime in your area, download the Safer Neighbourhood Team newsletter from the website.

Funding Requests

Bus Service 4 (Sundays & Bank Holidays)

Most bus services in Ipswich are operated commercially.  Local authorities have the ability to subsidise bus services that are considered to be socially necessary but which are not commercially viable. Funding was requested to contribute towards the cost of operating Bus Service 4 on Sunday and Bank Holiday daytimes between 8.30 am and 5.30pm for an 18 month experimental period. This will then help to ascertain whether there is justification for long term provision. SCC have also been asked for funding alongside the SE Area Committee.

Community Noticeboard at Ransomes Sports Pavilion

The Pavilion is a recently renovated facility in the North East Ipswich. It hosts a variety of events, sports clubs and community group activities. £1,008 was awarded to provide a noticeboard for clubs and groups to display information about activities and events at the Pavilion so that the public and neighbouring community are kept informed and know what’s available to them.

Next Meeting

The next meeting in the North East is to be held on Thursday 13 June 2019, 7.30pm – St John’s United Reformed Church, 1 Cowper Street IP4 4AF
