Whitehaven Priorities

  • Night Time Economy
    Issue was set on Tuesday, July 18
    • ACTIVE; We have identified a number of premises who may be breaching licensing regulations and are working with our partner agencies to ensure they comply with licensing objectives to ensure the community is a safe place to enjoy a night out. WE DID; We identified that some premises were serving under age drinkers, we worked with Trading Standards and conducted 2 Test Purchasing Operations in the last few months. We had a fail in the first Operation but the second Operation was 100% sucessful
  • Shopliftin in Whitehaven Town Centre.
    Issue was set on Tuesday, July 18
    • ACTIVE PRIORITY; There has been an increase in shoplifting in Whitehaven Town Centre during the last few months. WE ARE; Working with local businesses regarding crime prevention strategies and also supporting any shop watch schemes in Copeland. It is thought that a minority of individuals are responsible for the majority of the thefts and therefore by working with the Crown Prosecutions Service and other agencies we are able to make applications for Criminal Behaviour Orders through the courts following successful convictions. During the last month 6 orders have been granted by the courts to prevent offenders from entering shops throughout West Cumbria. This has reduced the number of thefts dramatically.
