Rural Watch Update

Dear Rural watch members

Due to the 2 reports of theft of quad from the Macclesfield area please ensure you are taking all the security measures you can around this vehicle:-
• Keys always removed when not in use
• Block quad in with another vehicle
• Use locks and floor mounts
• Consider tackers, data tagging etc
• Review the security around your buildings – Lights are working, buildings are left secure, gates closed

The team did a joint night time operation with Merseyside Police and Lancashire Rural team to target organised criminals involved in the theft of Landover defenders. Stop checks were carried out to check the right person was behind the wheel and the STOPMe stickers were given out.
Layers of security are good, something hidden, something visual and then hidden security measures

This operation is continuing to support our countryside locations so that everyone is able to enjoy the areas. The countryside code link is a great and simple way for people to ensure they are being responsible

A Swift Expression caravan has been reported stolen from the Congleton area. This occurred between 17.00-0800 27/4. If you have any dash cam footage that could help us please contact and quote ref IML974979.
Please review your security at yards or storage facilities

We are receiving a number of incidents in relation to hedge/ tree cutting and nesting birds.
It is not illegal to cut trees or hedges however there are certain considerations you should take in to account before doing so.
Check for tree preservation orders which can be found on your local council website.
Check for nesting birds as all wild birds are protected. This includes their nests (whilst in use or being built) as well as any eggs the nest may contain.
The main bird-breeding season is recognised as being between 1 March and 31 August therefore the risk of committing any offences is increased between these dates. It is recommended that if you undertake any work within these dates you should check the hedge for any signs of breeding activity first.

Kind regards
