Minutes:

The meeting received the notes from the following Ward Alliances:- Hoyland Milton and Rockingham held on 3rd March, 2021; Darfield held on 18th March, 2021; and Wombwell held on 1st March, 2021.

 

The Chair made Members aware of serious issues in her Ward, with illegal off-road biking extremely prevalent.  It was suggested that the culprits were aware of Councillors aims to prevent this, which had resulted in Councillors being targeted.  The Chair, Councillor Markham, had been assaulted by a biker, being knocked to the floor, and there were reports of Councillor Smith’s house being vandalised.

 

Issues had also been seen in other Wards within the South Area, including in Jump Valley.  Members were encouraged to supply intelligence to Fiona Tennyson, Tasking Officer, and were urged to call 999 in an emergency.

 

It was noted that a proposal to help combat the issue was due to be considered later in the meeting.

 

RESOLVED that the notes from the Ward Alliances be received.
