Police in Redcar are once again clamping down on parking in the town.

Neighbourhood officers are joining the Council Enforcement officers again this week to tackle the parking issues in the town centre.

The patrols will again be focusing on the areas of Grant Street, Coatham Road, Esplanade and the High Street. 

Tickets will be issued to those parked on double yellow lines and in disabled bays not displaying a blue badge.

Patrols will also be conducted outside Rye Hills School on Redcar Lane, targeting drivers parking on the footpath. 

Parents are asked to use the Schools car park instead of pulling up on the main road, blocking the footpath and restricting the flow of traffic at busy times.

 

Proposals to replace Redcar and Cleveland's street lamps from sodium to more efficient LED bulbs are to be submitted to Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council's next Cabinet meeting.

The scheme, which would be rolled out from April to December 2019, would see the installation of more than 15,000 new lanterns across the borough. This would result in the reduction of carbon emissions by more than 1,000 tonnes every year including a fall in energy consumption by more than 50%.

Detailed design work will ensure that lighting levels are tailored to suit the requirements of individual locations across the borough and the technology would make sure that the lights only switch on and off when there is a need, rather than because it is a specific time of day. This means only the electricity that is needed will be used.

The lighting design would meet all current safety standards and take full account of areas with specific risks associated with crime and traffic accidents.

The proposals will be considered by Cabinet on Tuesday 18 September.

 

A plan was launched this week to combat crime and fear of crime in Cleveland Police’s rural areas as part of a ‘Rural Week of Action’.

The Rural Policing Strategy for the next three years was shared at the Tees Rural Crime Forum, chaired by Cleveland’s Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger.

A covert Police operation, in partnership with neighbouring Forces, launched the ‘Rural Week of Action’ and saw more than 100 Stop Checks taking place and one arrest.

This week will see people being encouraged to sign up to Cleveland Connected’s ‘Rural Watch Scheme’ and drop-in sessions for free ‘Dot Peen’ property marking to deter theft.
