from Jo Adams

Hello! If you were the car (blue Clio I think) that just got reversed into on the main road outside Maliks (the car that was reversing into the main road and hit you) I saw everything if you need a witness.

From 23 - 29 January we celebrated Neighbourhood Policing Week across the Thames Valley.

Throughout the last seven days we have been focusing on the vital work that our neighbourhood officers, PCSOs and volunteers carry out every day to protect our communities.

From patrolling their local areas, to hosting Have Your Say events and visiting schools it has been another busy week for our Neighbourhood Teams.

Outside of this week of action, our Neighbourhood Teams and volunteers carry out this work and so much more 365 days a year. They're the local faces in our communities, providing vital services and support, and we couldn't be more grateful.

From today I will be reporting to each neighbourhood, the crimes that have occurred over the last two weeks relating to the categories below.  There are a maximum of six categories which I will populate with figures when relevant.  I will also list some relevant crime prevention advice which I hope will be helpful to you all.

Robbery - 1

Theft of a Motor Vehicle - 2

Maidenhead South (Boyn Hill, Cox Green, Woodlands Park, Oldfield, Bray)

Theft from a Motor Vehicle - 1

Theft of a Motor Vehicle - 1

Maidenhead West (Bisham, Cookham, Hurley, Pinkneys Green, Furze Platt)

Theft from a Motor Vehicle - 3

Most vehicle crime is preventable.  The best way to protect your belongings is to lock your car whenever you leave it.  Other things you can do include:

∑  Removing everything from the car, donít even leave a jacket where it can be seen.

∑  Closing the sunroof along with the windows when you leave.

∑  Not storing things in the boot, take them with you.

∑  Taking removable sat navs with you.

∑  Where you park can make a big difference to the safety of your car and your belongings.  Look out for car parks approved by the police safer parking scheme.  You can find them by looking for their distinctive ĎPark Markí signs.

∑  Having a routine to ensure you always take the keys out of the ignition.

∑  Storing car ownership information in your home, not your car.

∑  Using secure (theft resistant) number plates can make your plates less attractive to thieve.

The Met Office has responded to claims that a new 'Beast from the East' could hit the UK, bringing plenty of snow and wintery weather with it. It has denied the rumours that a 'snow bomb' could hit the county with a deep freeze.

Forecasters have now issued a medium and long-range forecast after some reports suggested a polar vortex could trigger a deep freeze across the UK. After a rather long period of cold weather, it's set to get milder in the coming week.

22/03410/FULL Proposed Green Belt Dwelling at Rose Garden, Whyteladyes/Dean Lane, Cookham
This is the applicantís third application here on Green Belt land in the last 18 months. So once again if you want to object, your comments need to be in by 2nd February, thatís this Thursday!

The Cookham Society is objecting strongly and our key points are:
- The site is located where Lower Road meets Dean Lane, at a clear end to existing Cookham Rise development and the start of Green Belt.
- This Green Belt boundary was confirmed in the recent Borough Local Plan.
- If this nibbling away at Green Belt is allowed to go ahead it will be a signal for further development along Dean Lane. As such it is a prime example of inappropriate development in the Green Belt and should be refused.
