Agenda item

Community Safety - Rachel Dickinson (Sac.15.12.2023/4)


Members received a presentation on the Clear Hold and Build initiative, a three-step model which looked to tackle organised crime in an innovative way. Hoyland had been chosen as a pilot location of this Home Office initiative.


During Member discussion examples of organised crime and ASB across the South Area were considered at length, including drug crime and off-road bikers. In determining methods to tackle crime, Members identified; CCTV and street-lighting, partnership agency working, youth workers and opportunities for young people, and appropriate locating of supported living accommodation. The shortfalls in police resource were acknowledged, as were delays in courts convicting criminals.      


RESOLVED that the presentation be noted.
