No Rogue Trader Zone

A new ‘No Rogue Trader Zone’ has been launched in Ryton-on-Dunsmore under a scheme operated by Warwickshire County Council’s Trading Standards Service and supported by Warwickshire Police.

The launch was attended by local residents, Cllr. Roberts, police and Trading Standards officers.

Councillor Howard Roberts, Portfolio Holder for Community Safety said: “Rogue traders are a menace, pressurising residents to have work carried out on their homes and gardens that is often unnecessary and always overpriced and poorly carried out.”

“No Rogue Trader Zones have proved very successful in deterring rogue traders and bogus callers where they have been established across the county. I’m delighted that a No Rogue Trader Zone is now being launched in Ryton-on-Dunsmore to help protect often very vulnerable and elderly residents from doorstep crime.”
