Tackling alcohol related crime and disorder in Matlock

  • We will be heading out to tackle alcohol related crime and disorder in Matlock, particularly in the areas of Old English Road, Dale Road, and Hall Leys Park.

Priority

Tackling illegal parking in Matlock Town Centre

Issue Date:
Issue was set on 09/03/2017
Actions to be taken are as follows:
  • We will be on the lookout for motorists parking unsafely following complaints from residents living in the Lime Tree Road area of Matlock. This includes motorists parking adjacent to the central solid white line systems in place in the area, making it very difficult for passing traffic.
  • We will be heading out on increased patrols at key times and will be speaking to drivers about the importance of safe and considerate driving to help keep the roads safe for both motorists and pedestrians.
  • Drivers should be aware that it is illegal to park adjacent to the solid white line systems, which if found guilty could attract a fine and penalty points on their driving licence.
