Annual Parish Meeting and Award Presentations
Hythe & Dibden Annual Parish Meeting
The Hythe & Dibden Annual Parish Meeting took place in the Parish Hall on Weds 15th March. The meeting opened with a presentation by Sgt Alison Jones and PC Ali Cross giving a presentation on the Hythe & Dibden Prevention and Neighbourhoods Team. The differing roles of a PCSO’s and Police Officers were explained. A comparison of crime figures for the same 90 day period last year in each of the Parish Wards showed an overall decrease in crime and anti-social behaviour. Sgt Jones stated that Hythe and Waterside had considerably lower crime rates than most other areas of the New Forest.
Graham Parkes then went on to give a presentation on the Neighbourhood Plan explaining the process and the progress so far.
