CORONAVIRUS – Shustoke Reservoir – Update 23rd April

UPDATE – 23rd April

The Police have now attended Shustoke on several occasions and will continue to do so.

Severn Trent has confirmed that the signs showing the footpath around the Reservoir was open have been removed. This means the OS orange coloured path around the reservoir (shown on the  map) accessed from the carpark area is now closed. The green public footpaths further away from the water (a right of way) are still open.

Severn Trent has ordered some large signs to reflect this current status but they may take a week to be installed. However, contractors will be attending to alter the access arrangements to the carpark.

The Coleshill Police Safer Neighbourhood Team will maintain daily visits to the outside area of the site to try and manage any parking issues etc.

 

ORIGINAL POST

Shustoke Reservoir is a private site owned by Severn Trent. The Reservoir and its car park are currently closed.

As a private site, it does not come within the latest Government guidelines for public parks – all of which should now be open.

The closure of the Reservoir car park has led to additional parking issues for the Village, with some visitors leaving their vehicles in inappropriate places. As North Warwickshire Borough Council currently has no parking warden operation, only the Police can enforce legislation relating to unnecessary or wilful obstruction of the highway, or parking in a dangerous position. Concerned residents will need to contact the Police on 101.

Have Your Say on Community Safety in Warwickshire

**Have Your Say on Community Safety in Warwickshire**

Local residents and businesses are being asked for their views on community safety in Warwickshire to ensure the right services are being developed to help make people feel safer and secure.

An online survey has been developed to give people across the county the chance to feed back to a range of organisations – local councils, fire and rescue, police, probation, health and third sector – who work together to address community safety through the Safer Warwickshire Partnership Board.

The survey will inform the partnership board about what matters to residents and businesses in Warwickshire, both at a neighbourhood and national level.

The survey will assist the Safer Warwickshire Partnership Board to better understand how crimes and incidents impact on their feelings of safety, what influences how safe they feel and how they would like to be engaged in the future.

Topics covered included people’s personal experiences of crime and anti-social behaviour in their local area, as well what types of incident are most concerning. Views on the effects of hate crime and personal safety are also being sought, alongside feedback on road safety, including how safe people feel using the road networks across Warwickshire and the wider UK.
