Anti-social behaviour around East Street & North St, Bedminster

Greater Bedminster Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) have noticed an increase of Anti-Social Behaviour within the area. We will be working with other partner agencies in a bid to reduce anti-social behaviour and traffic issues in and around East Street and North Street, Bedminster, Bristol.

Partner agencies include:

  • Bristol City Council
  • Parking Services

Examples of the types of anti-social behaviour reported to police are:

  • people being drunk in public spaces
  • Anti-Social Behaviour from youths
  • loud and erratic shouting
  • illegal parking
  • using insulting behaviour and being abusive

    Over the last few months we as a neighbourhood team have been doing regular patrols of North Street, particularly around the bus stop outside Aldi. We have been engaging with the street drinkers and moving them away from the bus stop. In doing so we have given out a couple of Community Protection Warnings to regular perpetrators.

    We have been doing some patrols with the Street Intervention Service to help safeguard these individuals. This will continue over the summer period.

    During one of our engagements recently with this group, we came across someone who were very unwell. We called for an ambulance who assisted and dealt with the individual. Without our intervention the person may have deteriorated and the situation could have been a lot worse.

    Due to the ongoing issues at the bus stop I have been in contact with Bristol City Council to discuss ways to reduce the impact the street drinkers have on the community.

    The Beat team are fully aware of the ongoing Street Drinking and Begging along East and North Street. Mainly outside of Aldi North Street .

    The team look to liaise with the Street Intervention Service, and Bristol City Council, whereby they submit referrals in a bid to find short and long term solutions to this issue.

    The neighbourhood policing team  will be taking action against regular perpetrators using evidence provided by the community.

    On Tuesday 28th September 2021, both the NPT and Trading Standards visited Ezee Shop and Zabka International on East Street to issue Closure Notices, resulting in the stores having to close with immediate effect. The application to be heard at Bristol Magistrates Court in Bristol on Thursday 30th September 2021.

    A copy of the Closure Notices were attached to each of the stores shop front shutters for public information.

    PC 869 Ingram stated “This will send a very visible message to other premises around the surrounding area whose illegal activity supporting anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated. Police, along with Trading Standards, will take positive action if warnings are not adhered to”.

    On Thursday 30th September 2021 Bristol City Magistrates Court found in favour of Trading Standards in accordance with section 80 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

    Zabka International and Ezee Shop were both given three month Closure Orders and both premises ordered to pay costs of £4,000.

    This was achieved as a result of the Greater Bedminster NPT working in partnership with Trading Standards over a 12 month period.

    PC 869 Ingram believes “It is great to see Bristol’s Magistrates Court supporting local partner agencies within Bedminster, who through working together over a 12 month period, are making our local communities safe and enjoyable places to live and visit”.

    The Greater Bedminster NPT will continue to monitor Anti-social Behaviour and its knock on affects within the local community and will deal with all reports positively.
