Neighbourhood priorities


“What you told us”


There has been reported disorder in the Scotswood area.


“What we are doing about it”


Officers regularly patrol the area as well as Newcastle council wardens. Staff have conducted questionnaires with residents in the area to ensure everyone is spoken to and the issues are . Drop ins are held for residents to discuss matters concerning them.


We regularly meet with our partners including Newcastle City Council and Your Homes Newcastle (YHN) Staff to discuss those persons who have been identified as responsible.  In conjunction with YHN we have visited those persons, given warnings and they were told if their behaviour continues tenancy enforcement action will be taken.  


We continually work with youth providers in an effort to divert people away from offending behaviour and the local schools to provide education.
