Have your say on draft Community Safety Plan

Published Tuesday, 21st September 2021

Residents of Hartlepool are being invited to take part in consultation on a proposed new three-year Community Safety Plan for the town.

By participating, they are also being asked to give their views on community safety within their local area and across Hartlepool generally.

The draft Community Safety Plan which covers the period 2021-24 has been drawn up by the Safer Hartlepool Partnership which brings together Hartlepool Borough Council, Cleveland Police, Cleveland Fire Brigade, The Probation Service, Tees Valley Clinical Commissioning Group and a range of other partners

In the first year of the plan (2021-22), the partnership has identified anti-social behaviour, domestic violence and drugs and alcohol as its key priorities.

People can view the draft plan and give their views by completing a short survey on the Council’s new Our Say Your Future digital engagement platform at https://yoursay.hartlepool.gov.uk/hbc21-shp-ftp

Councillor Shane Moore, Chair of the Safer Hartlepool Partnership and Leader of Hartlepool Borough Council, said: “The Partnership is committed to making Hartlepool a safe, prosperous and enjoyable place to live, work and visit.

“The Community Safety Plan is a key element of that, setting out our strategic priorities for action.

“It is important that the plan addresses people’s needs and concerns. The information that is provided via the online survey will help to shape the final plan, so we are keen to hear from as many people as possible

The consultation will remain open until Wednesday November 10th.

The plan will then go back to the Safer Hartlepool Partnership on Monday December 6th before being considered by the Council’s Finance and Policy on Monday December 13th and Full Council on Thursday December 16th.
