Whilst the issue of large numbers of young people gathering around the village has reduced, there were some complaints during June of anti-social behaviour from the car park of Churchtown Medical centre. Residents affected by this were visited and the young people involved were spoken to and moved on from the area. Further action will be taken if required.

We have liaised with the medical centre to see if they will apply anti-climb paint to the fence surrounding gardens of Balmoral Drive and Sunny Road to deter people from climbing over into gardens. The car park and wider area will continue to be patrolled regularly.

Any residents affected by anti-social behaviour should report it to Merseyside Police by dialing 101 or 999 in an emergency.
