“What you told us”

A number of businesses and members of the public have expressed their concerns about Anti Social Behaviour in the City Centre and Mowbray Park. This is reflected in complaints from service users and at partnership meetings.

We have had a number of complaints about  Anti Social Behaviour in the City Centre and Mowbray Park area.  Priority tasking has been put in place for both 24/7 response officers and your local Neighbourhood Team and this will continue throughout the summer.
