Police in Chellaston join forces with council to deal with nuisance motorbikers

Alert message sent 06/05/2020 09:28:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary


We have been working with Derby City Council in Chellaston to address residents’ concerns about nuisance motor bikers.

Over the last few weeks the Chellaston Safer Neighbourhood Team have had complaints of motor bikers causing a nuisance across the Derby suburb.

Officers have been patrolling complaint hot spots in Chellaston Park, Snelsmoor Lane, Chellaston Nature Reserve, Pitt Close Lane and the estate around Fellow Lands Way.

They have been asking the community for help in identifying the riders and as a result three young local men have been issued with Community Protection Warnings (CPW).

The warnings, issued jointly by us and officers from Derby City Council, set out the behaviour that is expected and the consequences if the warnings are breached.

The three, aged 20, 19 and 17 years, all live in Chellaston. The warnings state that they are:
  • Not to cause Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Not to ride mopeds, motorbikes or quad bikes in any public place other than on the road for commuting purposes.  This prohibition includes but is not limited to; not riding mopeds, motorbikes or quad bikes on grass verges, canal paths, recreation grounds or other such park areas. 
  • Not to associate in any public place with (others named as causing nuisance)
  • Not to visit/enter Sandyhill Close at any time. (Particular location of nuisance)
  • Not to be in possession of, or have under their control, in any public place, any motor vehicle that is not registered to them.

PC Adrian Miller from the Chellaston Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We have had lots of reports of nuisance motor bikers in the area driving dangerously both on and off-road.

“These are in areas that residents are out walking, exercising and are not for the use of motor bikes. Their use was also causing a noise nuisance.

“The warnings are the first stage of action we can take under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 and sets out that the behaviour is not acceptable.

“If these warnings are not abided to we will not hesitate to continue to take action, which could include the issuing of a Community Protection Notice, the breach of which is a criminal offence.

“We hope that by issuing these warnings to those responsible, their parents and carers will have time to consider their future actions and that the unacceptable behaviour will stop. In the meantime our patrols will continue.”
