Want to make your borough safer?

If you are worried about crime and anti-social behaviour in your neighbourhood, make sure your voice is heard.

The current Community Safety Partnership Plan (covering April 2013 – March 2017) is coming to an end and we are keen to update the plan with feedback from residents and stakeholders.

All stakeholders have the chance to shape the council’s next Community Safety Partnership Plan, as the consultation is now open.

There will be a number of community events along with an online questionnaire to hear views and feedback.  Complete the questionnaire to win a £100 John Lewis voucher.

The plan is developed in response to crime, anti-social behaviour, substance misuse and re-offending statistics and residents’ concerns.  It aimsto identify community safety priorities from residents, voluntary and community groups and partner agencies.

Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs said: Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs said: “Keeping residents safe is one of our top priorities. We want to hear from you about what your community safety priorities are to ensure the plan best meets the needs of our residents.  Understanding your concerns and views better will help us to make the right decisions.”

Cllr Shiria Khatun, deputy mayor and cabinet member for Community Safety added: “Keep an eye out on our website, we’ll be moving around the borough, holding public consultation meetings, discussing this at your local Ward Panels, Safer Neighbourhood Board, Ideas Stores, markets and other hubs across Tower Hamlets.”
