Case Study: Former traveller site in Caterham

Keeping travellers away from private property can sometimes be very challenging, especially if the site is large, unoccupied and has multiple access points. We worked on a project with the local council to restrict access to The Downs Residential Site, a former traveller site located in a rural area in Caterham, Surrey.

Keeping travellers away from private property can sometimes be very challenging, especially if the site is large, unoccupied and has multiple access points. We worked on a project with the local council to restrict access to The Downs Residential Site, a former traveller site located in a rural area in Caterham, Surrey.

Based close to Caterham and opposite a large private estate, the site was previously a residential site allocated for use for travellers.

Travellers and other groups continued to attempt to gain access to the site to use it. As with any unauthorised access and use of private property, this is considered to be trespassing. Therefore, the council got in contact with us to arrange to use our services to secure the site and ensure that future intrusions were not possible.

At Maltaward, we can offer a huge variety of different options in order to protect vacant property and open sites. Primarily this involves the use of large concrete barriers to stop vehicles from being able to gain access to the area. Additionally, we can set up protective screens, fencing, and concrete bollards in order to restrict entry points. These services were variously used by the council to ensure that the site cannot fall victim to intrusions from squatters and traveller groups.

However, in this case, given the size of the site and the fact that it was previously used by travellers, the council saw it necessary to take further steps to keep it secure. Therefore, we arranged for 24/7 security surveillance of the site to make sure that no-one was attempted to gain access to the site at any time. This is a long-term project to keep the site free from intruders.

If you have a vacant property or a large site that needs protecting and securing against trespassing for travellers, squatter and other groups, this is something that Maltaward can help you with. We can take on projects of any size, providing services ranging from barriers and fencing to security patrol dogs.

Alternatively if your site has already been targeted by travellers, we can provide full eviction services, with bailiffs available to regain possession of land within 24 to 48 hours.

Please get in contact with Maltaward today if you would like further information on what we can do for you to keep your property secure.

How to plan for crowd safety management at your event

At any kind of event, the safety of visitors, staff and anyone else in the vicinity must be paramount. Whether you are organising a parade, a concert, a festival or a market, individual measures must be put in place to keep everyone safe.

At any kind of event, the safety of visitors, staff and anyone else in the vicinity must be paramount. Whether you are organising a parade, a concert, a festival or a market, individual measures must be put in place to keep everyone safe. If you are running an event or in charge of crowd safety management you need to consider all of the potential risks and dangers, and take sensible steps to mitigate or eliminate risk wherever possible.

To do this you must carry out a risk assessment in order to identify issues and ensure the event can be staged safely. Here we take a look at some of the issues you will need to consider in your risk assessment.

Know your audience

To understand how to plan for safety at your event, you first need to have a good idea of who is going to be attending. The profile of the audience can help you determine how the crowd will behave. If the event showcases a performer that attracts a very frenetic audience this can help you to understand how to manage the crowd.

As well as the standard audience profile, it is also important to consider audience members such as young people and people with disabilities. Is your event accessible? Is it safe for children under a certain age to attend?

When you understand who is likely to be at your event you have put more effective measures in place to keep everyone safe.

Identify the hazards in the crowd

Depending on the kind of event that you are managing you can face specific challenges with the crowd. The dynamics of the crowd’s movement can produce dangers for this people in the crowd – for example, a densely packed crowd that is unsteady and surges can lead to individuals falling or being trampled.

Also consider how barriers are placed as a large crowd that sways can end up crushing those people who are standing against fixed structures. You should ideally work with barrier contractors who will be able to advise you on planning against this scenario.

Understand the numbers

As well as understanding the kind of people who might be likely to attend the event, it is also essential to be able to accurately forecast how many people are likely to turn up. At a ticketed event this is can be easy to understand and manage. However, at more casual events you may need to investigate the expected turnout in order to provide adequate facilities.

If you have run the event before, take a look at the previous attendance figures or check the numbers of people visiting similar events in the area. Also be aware that if your event is across a number of days that it is likely to busier on certain days than others and this should be taken into account when you are planning.

Is the venue suitable?

When you are choosing the venue for your event it is essential that you take all of the details above into account. Aside from the obvious questions over capacity you also need to consider the logistics of the venue, such as whether there is a large space at the entrance, where visitors are most likely to congregate.

Also consider how well the venue would be able to deal with an evacuation in the event of an emergency. It is always essential to plan for the worst case scenario to ensure that the risk to visitors and anyone in the vicinity is kept to a minimum.

Identify the hazards from the venue and surrounding area

Remember that it is not just the crowd that can cause safety issues at your event – and it’s not always something that you will have full control over. In poor weather, the ground might be in poor condition which can lead to risks of slips and falls. There may also be badly maintained pedestrian paths and routes. Make a note of potential danger areas as well as potential solutions or alternative pathways.

You also need to consider aspects of your event venue that you do have some level of control over such as where pedestrians and vehicles are in the same space, or where stalls and other structures can cause obstructions during busy times.

We have just completed a job for our client at Heathrow.

They had an incident on site and the HSE were involved and the client was given a 7 day improvement notice.

We were asked to attend site on the Monday morning to go through what needed to be done.

We had to deliver and install 95no Concrete Barriers, we had to place them and paint them Red and White and place them at night to create Pedestrian walkways. In conjunction with this we also had to line mark the walkways with green road markings, pedestrian symbols, solid white lines for the walkways and create new crossing points saying, STOP LOOK BOTH WAYS.

We worked in our usual reactive way, we painted the concrete barriers in our yard on the Tuesday, delivered them to site on the Wednesday on days , then we painted the walkways and installed the barriers on the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday nights and went back in to complete the final bits on the Sunday day, ready for HSE inspection on the Monday morning.

Our client was very pleased with the way we got the job done, and was even more pleased when HSE said they were pleased to.

This is why our customers come back to us time and time again.

It doesn’t matter if it is a small job or a big job we always try our best to get the job done.

Maltaward completed a Concrete Ring of Steel for the GAY PRIDE event in London on the weekend of 8th July 2017.

This was a weekend event attended by approximately 100’s and 1,000’s of people.

We had to deliver and install throughout the night in the busy capital on the Friday night and reopen the roads after the event in the early hours of the Sunday 9th July and clear the Concrete Barriers away from the event.

Our team of installers did a fantastic job and it was a job we were pleased to have done.

The logistics in doing these projects takes a lot of planning.

We have our own in house team of Appointed Persons, Slinger Banksman and trained Forklift Operators and installers.

Once again, thanks to all the team involved for the safe delivery of the Project.
