Zero Tolerance On Troubled Estate

Thursday November 21 2013


We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


A ZERO tolerance approach will be enforced on a troubled estate which has been blighted by anti-social behaviour.

A huge clear up was held at Aldham House estate, Wombwell, which has about 500 council and social houses, to sort out long-running issues.

Future offenders will be given a warning letter, a tenancy enforcement and then will face the threat of eviction, fixed penalty notices and possible prosecutions.

Police, council workers, staff from Berneslai Homes and even officers from the RSPCA were there to tackle issues on November 14 which have been raised by the residents themselves.

Cllr Karen Dyson, who organised the clear up with Sgt Sarah Hoyle from the police, said they had acted on calls from residents to improve the area.

"We want to make it a better area for people to live in," Cllr Dyson said. "They once said that we would never be able to have tenants and residents meetings in the area but we had two last week and they were well attended."

The operation included skips being delivered to clear up some of the rubbish which had been dumped outside houses, dogs being microchipped and police warning some tenants about their conduct.

The estate, which has about 500 council and social houses, will see a zero tolerance approach to further problems.

Offenders will be given a warning letter, a tenancy enforcement and then will face the threat of eviction, fixed penalty notices and possible prosecutions.

Sgt Hoyle said 'broken window' syndrome had taken hold in the area and some residents had simply grown used to the mess and not bothered if anything was done about it.

She said she and her colleagues wanted to change attitudes.

"We want to instill community pride in their environment and make people see that what they walk past every day is not acceptable," she said.

"For some people it will be a case of 'this is your last chance' otherwise next time we will enforce.

"It's about raising standards for people and setting the standard for the future."

this is a bit like de javu. weve heard al this before. not in wombwell area, but acros the whole of Barnsley.

Residents meetings are not at times when residents who WORK can get to them.
And I assume the warnings were NOT given to the ones smoking vast quantities of dope whilst supposedly looking after their kids? Because if they were it isn't working!

GET THE DRUG DEALERS PROBLEM SORTED EVICT THE LOT. FIND OUT WHO IS DEALING GROWING SUPPLYING .THAT WILL CLEAN THE PLACE UP

the police need to be coming round before 8/9pm, when all the younger kids are hanging about, making peoples lives a misery, interfering with cars, taking badges etc off them. screaming and shouting. seems the younger kids are being excluded from this. all the fly tipping to the rear of pearson cresent which end up being set alight forcing fire crews to deal with it rather than life threatning house fires. they also need to go and speak to the managers of the on going building works on pearson cresent/wortley avenue, as they are leaving more mess and rubbish on the street than any kids/teenagers

I own a house and live on the estate, it is being reported like its a terrible place to live, its not that bad, their is a lot of wasters live there but majority are nice hard working people, its the hand full of people that are dumping rubbish and using anti-social behavior that are ruining

Reply Posted by dedatodd on Thursday November 21 2013 at 13:13
This begs the question's of why now, surely the residents have been complaining for quite awhile now, what has been the tipping point? Also can we have the zero tolerance on all estates?

Reply Posted by Hugh marks on Thursday November 21 2013 at 13:26
Good luck with that! We have had serious antisocial behaviour problems in Darfield & dispute lots of promises absolutely nothing was done to help! We were just told that as the famines were in property of private landlords the council/police etc couldn't do anything but monitor the situation,

I think thay need to look at wombwell on a whole. Its nothing but trouble. Used to love a night out in wombwell. Now i wouldnt even go out for a quick half there.

Reply Posted by no on Thursday November 21 2013 at 14:50
If you abuse your tenancy agreement,like growing weed in house,anti social behaviour,you have got no respect for your home or neighbours.you sould be evicted and made to find yourself a home,you have made yourselfs homeless by abusing your home....be good tenants keep your home..

Reply Posted by cp on Thursday November 21 2013 at 16:55
im not arguing that if you saw the state of our estate a present but kicking everyone out for petty crimes is a bit melodramatic

Scum at top of Wilson street mmm well I live there an don't consider it t av scum living there and as for Terry's comment he's either the same sad person but usin another false name that drags things up on post that is nothing t do with the family he/she is targeting and if that's the case u really need to grow up u lead a very sad life if ur days r consumed with the need to b involved in other peoples life's and if ur real name is terry then u av prob read all previous comments an r judging this family by others words an as for rats every 1 is a where that u r never more than 2 ft away from one no matter wot area u living

Should be an automatic eviction if people are found growing/supplying drugs in council houses. There are thousands of decent people out their who are desperate for a home. Its not rocket science clear out the rubbish and improve the area.

Reply Posted by sid the man on Thursday November 21 2013 at 15:44
sometimes the council is not aware that people have grown drugs and been caught in council houses its said in tenancy agreement that its an automatic eviction if you breach your tenancy agreement ,it only takes the council to walk round and talk to neighbours about problems and you will be evicted

Paula you should have been looking after your son rather than growing weed then he wouldn't have been in a accident. Good mother NOT

Reply Posted by Paul on Thursday November 21 2013 at 17:59
Yes my real name and I live on the estate in question..there is a lot of good on the estate and the odd few who ruin it for everybody else,with the anti-social behaviour,drug selling,drinking,and finally people can make there own minds up..if somebody is growing drugs in there home with kids in the house..would you say this is a responsible and caring parent..my answer is NO.

Reply Posted by Steph on Thursday November 21 2013 at 17:46
Skints her self!! Half of family are claiming benefits probably on more money than us working lot are! Maybe trying getting money properly instead of growing drugs works wonders. i would be so ashamed if my mum and done that and then just plastered it all over fb like she wasnt in the wrong.

Goodness me. Why people do not mind their own business and live there own lives is mindbending. Gossip, tittle tattle just causes trouble. There is an old saying. There was a platoon of soldiers on the front line. The commanding officer gave an order to a soldier next to him and asked him tom pass it on. There were 100 soldiers and the command was SEND REINFORCEMENTS WE ARE GOING TO ADVANCE AND ASKED FOR A REPLY TO COME BACK. That reply was SEND 3 AND FOURPENCE WE ARE GOING TO A DANCE. Hope you understand what I mean, then you get the evil ones who deliberately lie to cause harm and distress. Its all so disturbing, that these things happen. GOOD luck to you all.

And 'sid' we never said growing in a council house with kids in it was slander and wasnt true you div! Whats lies and slander is everything else coming with it, for example my brother sleeping on floor!? Haha when he has his own bedroom with a double bed in it, your welcome to come visit and take a look yourself! You havent got far to walk!! And for him begging for food! He gets free school meals... So why would he be begging for food when its there free for him to take lol...and for growing in the bedroom, yeah thats why we have an hole in the cieling where the police came through the loft! Absolute idiot! SLANDERRRRRRR, LIESSSS, BULLSHIT! Like i say take that short walk and pay us a visit where all happy to do it face to face here! Shame you arent! Shows we having nothing to hide and your clueless fools do! Including your names hahaha! Sad shallow low lifessss

And the council visit every month if you didnt ALREADY know that with you knowing so much so yeah... Get them told! When they next come we hope to hear all this from them! And i know what hypocrite means you foool! Use your real name. Or even better take that SHORT walk to visit and show your face like the big man you make out to be... Big men dont hideeeee..
