SECTION 30 DESIGNATED AREAS EXTEND TO 25TH NOVEMBER
The two areas of Rainhill (above) which were deemed by the police to be "hot spots" for anti social behavior, have received extensions to their life-span until 25th November 2007. They were originally set up after numerous complaints from concerned residents living near to Martin Close. Masses of youths, many we believe from outside Rainhill, had been congregating in the area and causing huge disruption. After consultation with local residents and your councillors, the police successfully applied for the order to St Helens Council.
Initially for a six months period, the levels of anti social behavior have reduced, and we believe that with Halloween night, Bonfire night and particularly "Mischief Night" approaching, it is right to extend for this short period.
