Thames Valley Police and Hampshire Constabulary’s Joint Operations Unit made more than 700 arrests across both force areas as part of Operation Holly.

From 1 December to 31 December, officers carried out targeted activity in order to stop drivers under the influence of drink and drugs.

Across both force areas, 737 arrests were made, with 451 of those being made in the Thames Valley alone. This is an increase of 24% compared to last year.

Of those arrests made, 283 were for drink driving and 168 for drug driving.

There was also a 42% increase in arrests of those aged under 25 on last year with the figure rising to 101.

Detective Chief Inspector Mike Bettington, of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said: “Operation Holly is carried out throughout the festive period every year and it’s disappointing to see that people are still getting behind the wheel when under the influence of drink and/or drugs.

“We see all too often the devastating consequences that can result from this behaviour and I am pleased that we have managed to make so many arrests and prevent the potential harm that can be caused by drink and drug drivers.

“Our priority is to make the roads safer for everyone and we’d ask the public to help us do this by challenging anyone you think may be about to drive having drank alcohol or used drugs.

“Even the smallest amount of alcohol or drugs can impact on your driving. It’s not worth the risk.”

Community group gets green light to prepare Neighbourhood Plan for Maidenhead
The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead has given the green light for a community group to start preparing a draft Neighbourhood Plan to help guide future development across Maidenhead’s unparished areas.
Neighbourhood Plans allow communities to put in place planning policies for a specific neighbourhood area, adding detail to the policies already set in the Borough Local Plan. They are used to help decide planning applications.
Last year, the Maidenhead Neighbourhood Forum community group applied to designate all seven of Maidenhead’s unparished wards as one neighbourhood area, and to formally designate the group itself as a neighbourhood forum for the purposes of preparing a Neighbourhood Plan for Maidenhead.
Following a six-week public consultation, the council’s Planning Department has now agreed both of the group’s proposals, having confirmed the applications meet the legal requirements and considered the consultation feedback. Overwhelmingly, people who responded supported both proposals.
This decision allows the group to start the process of community engagement and consultation to shape a draft Neighbourhood Plan covering the wards of Belmont, St Mary’s, Riverside, Furze Platt, Pinkneys Green, Boyn Hill, and Oldfield.
Neighbourhood Plans are concerned with use and development of land, and may contain a vision, aims, planning policies, proposals for improving the area, and allocation of sites for specific kinds of development. When a designation is made, no other organisation or body can be designated for that neighbourhood area until that designation expires or is withdrawn.
Councillor Phil Haseler, Cabinet member for planning, parking, highways and transport, said: “We would like to thank everyone who shared your views in this consultation, which the Planning Department has carefully considered alongside the national legal requirements in making this positive decision on the group’s proposals.
“This decision is purely to give the green light to the proposals put forward by the community group to designate Maidenhead’s seven unparished wards as one neighbourhood and formally designate the group itself as the neighbourhood forum to lead the neighbourhood planning process for the area.
“The forum’s role now is to engage widely with the rest of the community to prepare a draft Neighbourhood Plan, which will itself be subject to public consultation and independent examination. We look forward to continuing to work with and support the group during the next stage of the process.”
