Gripfibre resurfacing programme - Crowthorne Ward - Further delay 
The grip fibre resurfacing programme which is due to commence on Wednesday 4th September in your ward has been delayed by one day. Unfortunately the contractor’s vehicle was involved in a serious accident on the M25 this morning on its way to Bracknell which prevented them from commencing the grip fibre re-surfacing programme on Jigs Lane North this morning. This will have a knock-on effect on the overall programme. I have revised the programme with new dates for the streets earmarked for re-surfacing in your ward below.

Street: New Wokingham Road
Extents: Waterloo Road to Dukes Ride
Affected Ward: Crowthorne
Proposed scheme start date: 5th September 2019

Residents will be notified of the schedule changes a few days prior to the commencement of the works via information boards that will be placed on each of the roads in question.
I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thames Valley Police - Keep Your Home Safe This Summer 
Don’t fall victim to opportunist burglars this summer!
At 9.30pm on Wednesday 24 July the elderly residents of a detached house close to Bracknell town centre that has a garden backing onto an alleyway disturbed a man as he was climbing in through their rear kitchen window which they had left open due to the hot weather. Fortunately the offender ran off without stealing anything or causing any injury. He fled back over the 6’ garden fence and along the path towards the town centre...

We received a complaint from a member of the pubic today concerning the behaviour of dogs at the Morgan Recreation Ground yesterday afternoon. The dogs concerned were off their leads and not under the control of their owner. The dogs jumped up at the lady concerned, marking her clothing and causing her alarm/distress to the point she had an asthma attack.
We are therefore reminding dog owners to be mindful of the need to keep dogs under control in a public place. The advice on the RSPCA link below is helpful in explaining the law in this regard.

Thames Valley Police - Important Changes to Medical Information 
You are now required to provide medical information verified by a GP for all firearm and shotgun applications - this includes renewals. This applies to any application, whether declaring a medical condition or not. The change is being implemented to enable the Police to make informed decisions which will protect both the shooting community and the wider public. The change will mean a consistent and fair process for all applicants, and will assist in improving application processing times. The fact you have a condition may not necessarily mean your application is refused. However, a false declaration could result in your prosecution, or your application being refused, or your existing license being revoked and your firearms or shotguns being seized.

This change will affect any application submitted from 1st August 2019...
