Residents from across Milton Keynes are being invited to share their thoughts on how to address anti-social behaviour (ASB) through a series of community events next week.
MK Council is hosting five drop in events to raise awareness of what ASB is, and how and where to report it as part of its Community Safety Week.
Frontline staff from council services and partners including Thames Valley Police and Bucks Fire & Rescue will be on hand to listen and give advice. Residents are being encouraged to come along and share their experiences so measures to tackle ASB can be planned.
The Council and partners will then carry out inspections in areas of concern, such as spaces with poor lighting or secluded areas.
Meet the team at:
Monday 4 July – Conniburrow Pavilion, 12-4pm
Tuesday 5 July – Frank Moran Centre in West Bletchley, 12-4pm
Wednesday 6 July – Lakes Estate, outside the Serpentine Court shops, 10am-2pm
Thursday 7 July – Rowans Family Centre at Fullers Slade, 10am-2pm
Friday 8 July – Fishermead Pirate Park, 11am-3pm
Cabinet Member for Public Realm, Cllr Lauren Townsend said: “ASB can be quite complex and people don’t always know how or who to report it to. That’s why we’re putting these events on, so local people can talk directly to colleagues and partners who are working hard to reduce ASB. I’d encourage residents to come along to the event in their area and have a chat.
“I’m really grateful to the teams and agencies that have dedicated their time to this and I look forward to hearing from local people about what more we can do to improve community safety.”
