Activities to help tackle crime and anti-social behaviour
Activities include a ‘graffiti amnesty’ – street care staff will be removing graffiti from Staple Hill on November 2, Filton on November 3 and Chipping Sodbury on November 5.
Work will be undertaken with young people at Little Stoke youth centre about the impact of anti-social behaviour and a special Not in My Neighbourhood Week poster competition has been organised at the youth centre as part of this.
And information stands are being set up across the district so residents can find out more about the work being done to help tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.
Also as part of Not in My Neighbourhood Week the council is continuing its ongoing campaign to raise awareness about keeping the ring road clear from litter and debris, which costs over £50k each year to clean up. The Council recently successfully prosecuted a company after waste from one of its vehicles illegally spilled onto the Ring Road.
Councillor Heather Goddard, executive member for communities, said: “The Council is working with its partners to organise different activities as part of Not in My Neighbourhood Week to help tackle crime and antisocial behaviour and improve the quality of life for residents in the district.”
