Rural Crime Survey

I wanted to get in touch to let you know that today I have launched a Rural Crime survey that will run throughout the summer.

Around two thirds of Cheshire is classed as rural, and I know from the contact I’ve had from residents and elected representatives across the county that rural crime can affect everyone. From theft of equipment and dangerous use of country roads to harming wildlife and anti-social behaviour, the scope and impact of rural crime is varied.

Through this survey I hope to build a better picture of how rural crime affects different communities across Cheshire. I want to understand what our Rural Crime Team does well and what good practice can be expanded further, and I want to know where the police approach can improve and which issues residents believe need a greater focus. People’s feedback will give me a greater insight into how I can hold the Chief Constable to account for how Cheshire Police prevents and tackles rural crime.

Rural crime has the potential to devastate livelihoods and wreck the scenic countryside we have on our doorstep. Whether we live or work in a rural area or visit there to enjoy one of Cheshire’s many natural beauty spots, I believe we all have a stake in ensuring our rural areas and communities are protected.

Please do share this survey so that residents can have their say:

Kind Regards

The appointed auditor can be contacted at the address in paragraph 4 below for this purpose between the above dates only.

Unfortunately, due to the large number of local events and the subsequent difficulty in obtaining supplies, Peover Superior Parish Council has made the difficult decision to cancel its Picnic in the Park event on Thursday 2nd June commemorating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We have, however, purchased commemorative mugs for all primary school-aged children living in the village. These will be given to the children after the half term holiday. If your child lives in the village but does not attend the primary school, please email the parish clerk with your address. Arrangements will be made to distribute the mugs after the holiday.

Also, we are very pleased to announce that the book Over Peover – A Cheshire Parish, originally written for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, is to be updated and made available before the end of the year.
