Connah`s Quay Town Council Minutes with extra`s
PC Marie Williams and PCSO Sarah Hughes-Jones attended the meeting.
Members of the council raised the issue of youths riding bikes on the pavements, and cyclists riding without lights, whilst its unclear as to why youths were singled out specifically (they usually are!), the problem appears to cut across all age groups.
This recently shot video by an anonymous You Tube user named onecarefulowner63 highlights the problems.
Police said they had spoken to and cautioned cyclists riding on pavements and if safe encouraged them to ride on the road.
If cyclists ride irresponsibly on the pavement they should be reported to the Police on 101, they are also able to be tracked on CCTV.
Council members expressed concern over the change of times for Police surgeries in Connah`s Quay.
The Police representatives responded by explaining surgeries were for the public to attend and were advertised by every channel, posters, facebook, twitter.
Members of the council expressed concern over the increase of thefts and anti social behavior and thanked the police for their rapid response to attempted burglaries in Connah`s Quay.
In response the Police said they were aware of the recent crimes and informed council members there was an operation currently in place for offenders to receive judicial punishment rather than a caution.
The members raised the issue around a lack of alternative public toilet provisions in Connah`s Quay.
The public toilets which were built a couple of years ago, at a cost of £117,000 have been closed off to the public, this was at the request of the Police back in the summer following an ‘incident’, the Police said they would enquire about alternative facilities and report back on to the members.
143. Connah`s Quay Town Council Website
Russ Gannon from Wirral based Route one webdesign was invited to present an assessment of the current website, plus the benefits a ‘re-vamp’ would bring, these included the use of advertising to pay for the website, offer local services, job adverts, ‘social media benefits’ boosting tourism, and tracking the number of users visiting the website.
The members of the council felt the website ‘does not need to be over populated with advertising’ however it has to be user friendly in reference to the council members uploading information, they acknowledged the current site was in need of ‘brightening up’
The members agreed to discuss the website at a future meeting and if necessary to go out to tender (hopefully to a Deeside based web developer or designer)
