Teenagers on illegal scooters a daily problem” “Teenagers (male) riding on mopeds up and down Tresilian Avenue in the daytime and evening. Extremely noisy and doing wheelies which is dangerous. Football in Sainsbury’s car park after midnight”
  • 9. Living in Highlands Village: Problems: Teenagers “Eggs thrown at front door. Front door kicked in by 3 youths. Called police but they didn’t turn up. Contacted David Burrowes, local police neighbourhood team, but they didn’t turn up.” “Kids, who don’t seem to live here, fighting, threatening each other and shouting abuse” “Children coming into our private car park and stealing bits off our cars for their bikes” “Our For Sale Sign was burned down”
  • 10. Living in Highlands Village: “Visitors getting lost. They arrive looking for an inadequate address. Residents are often unaware of the names of other flats and cul de sacs, so they are unable to direct the enquiries. A big public MAP might help.”
