Woodland parties

posted 28 Apr 2012, 05:20 by Unknown user
It would appear that some "parties" have been occurring in local woodland, particularly in Pheasants Wood between Queens Drive and Berry Lane. Members of the residents assoication contacted us about an incident that occurred at the end of March where there was ongoing noise nuisance throughout the night, and due to the nature of the landscape it was initially quite difficult for the source of the noise to be initially tracked down.

The Police and the local Distruct Council are keen to work with the local community to ensure that further inappropriate use of the local woodlands does not occur leading to anti-social activites. Any suspected anti-social activity should initially be reported to the police on the non-emergency number 101.

Chief Inspector for Three Rivers, Catherine Akehurst said: "The gatherings have been relatively sporadic but when they do occur, the noise and behaviour does have an impact on residents living in the area. We won't tolerate behaviour which can be deemed anti-social, and we're working with Three Rivers District Council in order to tackle the issue. I'd urge local residents to help us build a picture of the activity in the woods by calling us when these gatherings are taking place so we can liaise with the council and take appropriate action.

Whilst the police do not have evidence that illegal drugs were being taken, anyone found in possession of illegal substances will be dealt with accordingly.
Please contact residents assocation if you have any ongoing concern about this issue.
