September 2015  

In the first case of its kind since new restrictions were imposed, a driver was fined after illegally driving in the pedestrianised zone of Caldicot town centre. The female driver was issued with a £30 fixed penalty notice. A male passenger was being investigated for allegedly racially-abusing witnesses.

Caldicot Town Team was awarded a grant of £2,000 from the £225,000 allocated by Monmouthshire County Council for regenerating Caldicot town centre. So far, only £42,000 of the £225,000 has been spent.

Caldicot police reported that September saw a decrease in the anti-social behaviour calls to Caldicot Castle Country Park since the previous month but a slight increase in calls to the Skate Board Park in Mill Lane. Officers began patrolling this area as a result and promised “positive action” to resolve the problem. There was also an increase in calls to King George Playing fields. Sergeant Giles ran a Road Safety Operation on the 28th September with support from Community Support Officers focussing on parking and speeding concerns in and around Durand Primary School. Six people were “dealt with” for parking and speeding offences. Further operations were being planned.
