You Said: Request for more attention to be paid to the riders of electric scooters and other off-road vehicles in the Horsforth area. 

You Said: Request for more patrols in the areas surrounding local schools at drop-off and collection times, due to inconsiderate parking.

You Said: Repeated calls for service were received regarding vagrancy, anti-social behaviour and begging outside the ASDA store at Holt Park. 

We Did: The person in question was offered multiple avenues of support but continued to offend. NPT worked together with Safer Leeds and now the person has been issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) preventing them from being in the areas where they were offending, alongside other prohibitions. Any breaches of this order will be enforced appropriately.

  • Proactive patrols of the Holt Park area, to deter those involved in anti-social behaviour.

You Said: Repeated reports were received regarding anti-social behaviour in Otley, mainly focused on one specific individual, their continued abuse of Alcohol and their behaviour towards other members of the public whilst under the influence of Alcohol. 

We Did: The subject of these reports has recently been served with a custodial sentence, which will keep them from attending the Otley area. Upon their release, they will be offered the relevant support to prevent any re-offending.

  • Proactive patrols of the local area, concentrating on areas of greenspace to deal with ASB, this includes but is not limited to Otley Chevin, Yeadon Tarn and the parks and play areas of Otley and Yeadon.

You Said: Complaints have been received regarding anti-social behaviour and drugs usage within the parks and greenspaces of the ward. 

We Did: We have increased our patrols of the reported areas throughout the day, to provide a visual presence & a deterrent to anyone wishing to commit this type of behaviour within the parks. These increased patrols will continue, as longer nights start to draw in. 

  • Proactive patrols of the local area, concentrating on areas of greenspace to deal with ASB, this includes but is not limited to Nunroyd Park, Micklefield Park, Guiseley School's Playing Fields and the parks and play areas of Guiseley and Rawdon.

Neighbourhood Priorities - Inner North West Area 


Ward Area - Headingley & Hyde Park - Set 6th April 2022

Lead Sergeant – PS 3489 Green

Lead Area Problem Solving Officers – PC 5065 Scott & PC 4264 Hanmer

You Said: Parking issues on Ash Road and the surrounding streets making it dangerous for pedestrians, passing vehicles and larger vehicles. 

We Did:  Several tickets have been issued over the past six weeks for vehicles parked dangerously or illegally, as well as one vehicle recovered for causing an obstruction. Education work has been completed in conjunction with partner agencies and Officers proactively engaging with the community to advise on the potential impacts of their parking. 

You Said: Alcohol-related disorder from house parties and the Otley Run.

We did: We have stepped up our Police presence in the key locations, especially at peak times, deploying Officers on foot to act as a visual deterrent and proactively engage with those involved and take positive action in relation to any offences witnessed/reported. The Public Space Protection Order has been enforced with breaches reported to the appropriate authority. Meetings have recently taken place with Leeds City Council, Licensing and local businesses to share ideas & as a result, a funding application has been made to allow us to bolster our resources to deal with this issue in a stronger manner. 

You Said: Drug dealing across the area

We did: Over the past six weeks, seven drugs warrants have been executed in the ward. From those seven warrants, Class-A and B drugs with a collective value exceeding £100,000 have been seized, alongside weapons and cash. In addition to this, proactive plain-clothed operations have taken place which have led to arrests for conspiracy to supply, as well as more drugs and cash being seized. Also, a prolific drug-dealing address has been shut down which had caused disruption to the community for several months. Work is continuing to be done, with several more warrants due to be executed in the next few weeks. 

Priorities set with the community for the next 6 weeks:

  • Alcohol related disorder from house parties and the Otley Run
  • Graffiti problems around Hyde Park
  • Drug dealing across the ward

You Said: Speeding in the Becketts Park area  

We Did: Over the past 6 weeks we have been out in the Becketts Park area and in the wider ward area with the SID machine (speed indication device) monitoring drivers' speed. Any drivers over the speed limit have been stopped and spoken to. We will be continuing to use the SID machine within the ward area moving forward.
