Community Safety Advice

It has been bought to our attention that a group historically known as ‘Nottingham Knockers’ are operating in the Winchester area. They are normally ex-offenders who claim that they are working with a pedlars certificate. Essentially they work to a gang master who will bring a group to a specific area and drop off. The individuals then go off selling door to door before getting picked up and taken to another area. While there are periodically allegations of abusive behaviour by those selling at the door if a householder refuses to buy goods, these incidents are the exception rather than the norm.

The advice is not to open the door to strangers or buy or sell on the doorstep. If a householder is abused or threatened on their own doorstep then they should be calling the police, 101 or 999 if they feel particularly vulnerable by the intimidating behaviour.

Traffic

Speed and volume of traffic through the village is an ongoing concern.

In 2014 kerbs were installed along a number of roads in the village. While protecting the verges they have also contributed to a notable reduction in speed as it is more difficult for vehicles to pass side by side. 

Details of traffic survey undertaken in 2015 can be viewed here

Traffic Survey

The Parish Plan due to be published late Summer/early Autumn reviews options for tackling traffic concerns. 

 

Highways

Ensuring that roads are maintained, resolving issues such as potholes and blocked drains and liaising with Hampshire Highways Authority is a contstant effort.

After Councillor Wooles ongoing persistance it was pleasing to report in November that the flooding issue outside the Plough had finally been resolved.
