October 2018 – Youth Related Antisocial Behaviour

"What you told us"


Groups of youths congregate on and around Elswick Road and act inconsiderately.

"What are we doing about it?"


Additional high visibility foot patrols and on-going community engagement. Repeat offenders have been (and continue to be) identified and joint visits with housing providers have been carried out. Furthermore, attempts are being made to address their behaviour through the use of Antisocial Behaviour legislation and Community Protection Notice Warnings. A working party has examined environmental factors (layout, street lighting, access to green spaces) in the Jubilee Estate and improvements to street lighting are planned.

"Keeping you informed"


Updates of patrols and investigations will be provided at local meetings and via social media.
