Newquay Safe, the well-established partnership which includes representatives from Devon and Cornwall Police, Cornwall Council, Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service, Newquay BID, Newquay Town Council and other agencies, has met to ensure a coordinated response to local concerns regarding the Little Fistral area.
Following a series of meetings Newquay Safe partners are increasing the number of multi-agency visits to the area to deal with the range of issues which have been reported.
Actions currently underway include safety improvements at Towan Headland car park; additional bins for barbecue refuse; increased frequency of bin emptying; regular visits by Cornwall Fire and Rescue service to give advice to those having barbeques on the beach or lighting fires in the dunes; additional police patrols; increased focus by Cornwall Council’s enforcement teams.
The partnership says abusive and aggressive behaviour towards staff or any members of the public, by visitors or residents, will not be tolerated and will be investigated by the police.
Newquay Safe is strongly encouraging the community to keep reporting concerns through the correct channels:
If people experience anti-social behaviour, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101 for non-emergencies and in an emergency call 999.
If you see a fire on the beach or in the dunes call 999, and ask for the Fire and Rescue Service. Try to give the exact location – give a map reference if possible, or give a nearby landmark.
If you see someone sleeping rough you can contact Streetlink via www.streetlink.org.uk or 0300 500 0914 (or 999 if they need urgent medical assistance). Individuals sleeping rough can contact the Cornwall Housing Options Team on 0300 1234 161 or drop into an Information Service (formerly called One Stop Shop).
If you have information about a crime you can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
For concerns about rubbish such as glass and needles on the street, call Cornwall Council Refuse and Recycling on 0300 1234 141 or email email@example.com or use Cornwall Council’s Report It tool.
You can report an illegally parked vehicle using the online form or call 0300 1234 141.
