Residents raise parking and bike issues with police

The latest Audenshaw and Droylsden Neighbourhood Police Teams Q&A Web Chat has been held.

The web chats allow residents to ask their police teams for updates and highlight issues of concern.

Questions asked included what action was being taken to crack down on the use of illegal road bikes and quad bikes. Audenshaw Road and Stamford Road were highlighted as main areas of concern where the bikes are a particular problem.

Police say they are aware of the issues and patrolling when possible.

Concerns about drivers parking on double yellow lines on Park Road in Audenshaw were also raised, with police stating they would pass this matter onto their Traffic Enforcement Officers to look at.

In response to claims the police were not carrying out patrols in Droylsden to crack down on anti-social behaviour, the team stated: “The police regularly patrol the Droylsden area, both during the day and night. They deploy where the demand requires in order to deter, and to deal with ASB. 

“This may not be something that is seen by everyone but they do patrol. 

“There is a dedicated Neighbourhood Policing Team covering Droylsden and these consist of both PCs and PCSOs. 

“If you have any concerns about issues in the area, you can report these via 101 or via the GMP website.”
