ADDITIONAL measures to secure Moss Farm are to be looked at in order to reduce incidents of anti-social behaviour.

A meeting was instigated and attended by around 30 nearby residents who raised concerns over troubling issues including littering, vehicle usage and youths accessing the site late at night.

This meeting was attended by Hartford and Greenbank PCSO Michelle Gillett, Brio site manager Mark Swaffield and Cllr Sam Naylor, of Cheshire West and Chester and Northwich Town councils.

And Cllr Naylor says that it was a good opportunity to listen to residents concerns so that action could be taken.

“Residents in the area instigated the meeting and invited me down due to my long association with Moss Farm,” he said.

“They wanted to raise issues about general anti-social behaviour, the fact that the site is not over secure, litter, and youths on site late at night.

“Moss Farm was one of the main reasons why I entered local politics, with the way it has deteriorated over the years.

“It was a good opportunity to hear what people had to say, and hopefully between partners, measures can be put in place to alleviate the issues raised.”

It was agreed that both Brio and Cheshire Police will give it more attention to the site and an additional security system will be looked into to make the site fully secure from 10pm, where nobody can gain access except for emergency vehicles.

It was stressed that any incidents of anti-social behaviour should be reported to police on 101.
