Local councillors are continuing to work with the Police, Fire Service, Housing, Youth Justice team and local residents to tackle anti-social behaviour.
Simon, Sue & Andrew visited Acomb Fire Station to meet the team and discuss their community safety work.
A multi-agency drop-in meeting was held at Sanderson House on Bramham Road on 12 July, where residents could ask questions of the Police and City of York Council officers about the effectiveness of their actions to tackle Anti Social Behaviour (ASB) and promote community safety.
Cllr Andrew Waller commented “Residents have a right to expect Police and council officers to communicate what steps they are taking to keep our community safe and tackle ASB. It’s important that all incidents are reported to the Police on 101 or 999, as it will help to ensure that the Police allocate resources to our area .”
In Foxwood, the Lib Dem team is continuing to press the case for additional measures to tackle ASB, including the installation of CCTV in the area around the shops on Foxwood Lane.The team is active in reporting issues and cleaning up after incidents, for example when the bus shelter at the top of Foxwood Lane was damaged again recently.
On a recent visit to Acomb Fire station the team discussed the approach to tackling the setting of fires in local open spaces. As well as causing damage to property, this can also be very dangerous for the people involved, particularly where they are using aerosols to start the fire. It was good to hear that the Fire Service are engaging with local schools to get the fire safety message across.
