No Cold Calling Zones

No Cold Calling Zones

The Community Led Plan highlighted the need for Cold Calling zones in the village.

Cold Calling zones were first set up in the UK by Cambridgeshire Trading Standards. They are designated areas ( streets, cul de sacs etc) which aim to deter uninvited sales people and help give residents the confidence to say 'no' to doorstep callers.

Cold calling zones help stop potential rogue traders and distraction burglars in areas where these had previously been a problem.

Each Cold Calling area requires a local coordinator.

If you live in or near to a No Cold Calling Zone or would like more information about becoming the local coordinator then please contact the Community Protection Team on 0345 045 5206.#CrimeinLittlePaxton#StNeotsPolice#Safercommunities#NeighbourhoodWatch
