The group has now been running for six years and all residents with any concerns about crime or anti-social behaviour in this area are encouraged to attend to air their views. Representatives from the police and members of the local council will be present. Neighbourhood Panels are all about finding long-term solutions to problems and working together to resolve them. Priorities set at the last meeting were: dog fouling in and around the Eshton Road area; cycling on the footpaths, particularly along Seaside; the bus stop on Royal Parade, near to Channel View Road, to be made more prominent with improved road markings. More information about local panels can be found at The website includes an online form so that you can provide feedback, plus a link to which enables you to report specific problems in the street where you live.
