I attended an Oscott Police Neighbourhood tasking meeting today along with officers from the Birmingham City Council and a number of Community Group leaders.
Some of the topics raised were speeding in KettleHouse Road, Cooksey Lane and Kingstanding Road. There has also been a bit of a crack down on speeding motor bikes in the area. Parking problems caused by the Metropolitan college were discussed. I explained action will be needed urgently by the Police if the car park is not finished in time for the new term.
The nuisance of ball games on the street is becoming an issue it may only be a matter of time until a child is run over.
Anti social behaviour in the Buford Road playing field area was another matter which was discussed.
I find these meetings with the Police useful as it helps keep various issues high on their agenda.
