No Cold Calling Zones

Launch of No Cold Calling Zones with North East Bassett Residents Association

Southampton Conservatives are setting up No Cold Calling Zones in the city where residents associations want them.

I am really pleased by number of residents associations in the Freemantle Ward which are in the process of setting them up.

An area with a No Cold Calling Zone has signs on lamp posts and stickers in residents’ windows which aim to discourage nuisance callers and to give residents the confidence to turn unwanted visitors away. Hampshire Constabulary are supporting the scheme and they have advised that they are helpful in reducing burglary in the area.

More information can be found HERE, and by emailing:

No Cold Calling Zones are part of a package of Community Safety policies announced by local Conservatives as we approach the local elections next month. Our full manifesto and other Community Safety policies can be found HERE.
