Rural Watch Police Update

Police Rural Watch

This information has been received from the Police rural watch. It has a specific comment on an incident that happened in Wellesbourne but is useful to know what is happening in our local area in general.

We have received reports of doorstep sellers in SNITTERFIELD  who are generally from the Nottingham area and claim to be ex offenders trying to make a living from selling items such as dusters and household cleaning products. Invariably they do not have the required pedlars licence to do this and often use pressure selling techniques.

If you are in any doubt about the authenticity of any ID that may be presented or are suspicious about any person who comes to your door please politely decline their services and discreetly phone Warwickshire police on 101 so that local officers can carry out the required checks.

Further to this and just in, we have received a report of a notice board and bus shelter being vandalised in Stratford road WELLESBOURNE sometime after 8pm on Wednesday 16th April.

Incident number 250 of 17/04/2014 refers.

Please phone us on 101 if you have any information regarding this or any other crime.

Update for Affordable Housing at Ettington Park

Ettington Park Housing Project

We have been provided with with some information regarding affordable housing at the new Ettington Park housing project.

Stratford District Council has confirmed that 40% of the properties have been designated as Affordable Housing, with properties being built by Charles Church in a phased construction from now until 2017.

The properties will be available first to those who satisfy the local connection criteria, e.g.– born in the Parish of Wellesbourne, a current resident in the Parish of Wellesbourne, currently working in the Parish of Wellesbourne, a previous resident in the Parish of Wellesbourne or have immediate family members living in the Parish of Wellesbourne.

People currently living in another Housing Association property in Wellesbourne can also apply to move to Ettington Park in the same way.  A similar criteria will then be applied to people with local connections to adjacent parishes if the Wellesbourne connection is not fulfilled.

The advice from Stratford District Council Housing Department is to register as soon as possible in the first instance with Home Choice Plus – www.homechoiceplus.org.uk and then once people have registered they are in a position to bid for the properties as they become available on the Home Choice Plus website – they will need to check this on a regular basis each week.

There are properties being built which will be suitable for singles, couples and those with children.
