DUNBAR CAPP – Local Priorities ASB & Speeding – 1st Feb

Thank you for your attendance last night, I thought it was a constructive meeting. We do have a challenge on our hands to help these young people and take the pressure of our Police Officers. I have already made contact with Council Officers and they are looking at options to help us. I have a meeting arranged to discuss the speeding and ASB issues with East Lothian Commander and will report back on any progress we can make.

Note of meeting

Police report – As no Community Police Officer was available Councillor Hampshire read out the Police report provided by PC Peter Bamford.

The meeting discussed the incidents and updates were given on the issues.

The damaged benches at Winterfield had been repaired by the Council and paid for by the Fairground Operator.

The Community Warden gave a report on the work they had done with the Council Rangers Service to try and stop the Anti-Social Behaviour taking place at the Lynn Rocks during the Summer. New signage has been purchased to be erected warning people of the dangers at the Lynn Rocks and to respect the area.

The meeting agreed to remove the Lynn Rocks from the Police Priority as we are moving into the winter and young people do not gather there at this time of the year. We will review the situation at Lynn Rocks next spring.

The Police report said there was no evidence of any drugs being dealt at Belhaven Car Park after giving it some attention. However, there have been further reports that this action is still taking place at Belhaven and members want the police to continue to patrol this area as a priority. The police need more intelligence on when and what action is taking place.

Speeding is an ongoing issue in Dunbar as members feel individuals are not adhering to the 20mph speed limit in the town. The members want this to continue as a priority for the Police and to use the speed gun more often in the Dunbar & East Linton Ward. This is happening across all areas and the Police should try and target some streets. The meeting identified Belhaven Road, Queens Road, Back Road and East Linton High Street. There are many other streets the Police should look at but this is a start.

In East Linton the Speed Reactive Sign on Drylaw Hill is broken and the Community Council have applied for funding for a replacement through the area partnership.

The Date of the Next Meeting is Wednesday 10th of November 2021
