After listening to the local community, the police — along with the Department for Regional Development (DRD) and Belfast City Council (BCC) when necessary — have been asked to investigate the following issues:

Cyclists riding on the pavements in the Stormont and Ballyhackamore area is being dealt with by both police and Roads Service;

Police are to increase patrols in the Campbell Park Avenue and the Belmont Church Road area to combat the increased incidents of anti-social behaviour;

The issue of vandalism and overgrown hedges on the North Road is being dealt with by the PSNI, Belfast City Council's Environmental Health department and Roads Service;

Dog fouling in Kirkliston Park and Cyprus Avenue has been referred to BCC;

The matter of alleygating in Belmont Avenue is ongoing with both the PSNI and BCC considering funding.

A police spokesperson said: “The PSNI along with its partner agencies, DRD and Belfast City Council, are working to address all of the issues mentioned above. Issues from the previous meeting held in November 2009 have been dealt with successfully or are being monitored.”

The next meeting will take place on Tuesday, March 30, at Heyn Hall, St Mark’s Church, at 7pm. The theme of the meeting is Special Focus — Youth Justice Agency.
