Quality Streets campaign comes to Uckfield

Police, fire service, DVLA and council officers are joining forces to bring a Quality Streets campaign to Uckfield on Friday.

Uplands Close, off The Drive, is being targeted as part of an initiative organised by Wealden District Community Safety Partnership.

Police and officers from Wealden District Council will ask residents about issues that cause concern and staff from the Youth Development Service will work with young people.

Officers from the DVLA will be there to work with the local authority to target untaxed vehicles.

Also present will be officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Team, Trading Standards and Wealden District Council departments including Parks, Animal Warden, Environmental Health, Housing, Clean and Green, Waste and Recycling and Community Safety.

The event will run from 3pm to 7pm.

A press release from the safety partnership says the Police will be on hand to encourage development of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme to provide a valuable 'eyes and ears' service to the Police as well as promote community cohesion and confidence.

Wealden District Police Neighbourhood Inspector Tony Wakefield said: “We will have a wide range of organisations working together to increase confidence for the local community and improve the local environment.

“There will be a number of information stalls and officers will be calling at homes around the area to talk to residents about the issues that cause them concern.”
