>> Motorbike annoyance - 26/02/2011

Within the last month there has been an slight increase in motorcycle annoyance related reports across the Llanedeyrn and Pentwyn areas. The reports reflect the same motorbikes causing the annoyance, therefore a motorcycle operation was put together and conducted last weekend in collaboration with the Council off-road team.

This year, Motorbike annoyance calls between May 2010 and October 2010 we recieved 1 call specifically for motorbike annoyance within Coed-Y-Gores, that 1 call was around the time the fencing scheme had just started.
