Issue Summary

bike theft at five rivers


Latest Update

06/07/2018 00:11:03 referred to officers for advice, will respond asap

CATG Action / Recommendation


The bike rack at the back of Five Rivers Leisure Centre has a sign up reporting that numerous bike thefts had occurred from the rack and that the police were working to eradicate the problem. Well I can add another bike to the list unfortunately as my son left his there having not seen the sign. My issue is this - what exactly is happening who is it happening with and why - If the problem is that bad - is the bike rack still open for business. It seems absolutely ridiculous that a leisure centre bike rack cannot offer a reasonable level of protection for the bikes of those who visit or work there....and if not - close the bike rack Surely there is a duty to those using it rather than just sticking up a notice in the hope that someone will notice it.


Issue Location


Street / Location

Five Rivers Leisure Centre

Electoral Division

Salisbury St Pauls

Issue Duration

Appears to have been going on long enough for numerous bikes to be stolen

Who is Affected

Anyone who doesnt want their bike stolen.

What has been done so far

Reported the latest theft to the police and now completing this in the hope that whatever it is that the police are apparently doing which doesnt seem to have achieved much that the issue will actually get pursued rather than just stick a sign up and hope which i suspect is whats actually happening.

What would resolve issue

I would like to know what action is being taken - the sign makes a very clear and explicit claim which presumably can be supported by facts and evidence. Furthermore whatever steps need to be taken to provide back racks that dont result in numerous bikes being stolen from them.

Who needs to come together

Wiltshire council and the police presumably - as that's what the sign suggests.
