Barnsley residents can give their views on crime and anti-social behaviour in the borough, in a survey created by The Safer Barnsley Partnership Board (SBPB). The survey will help to tackle local issues, helping make Barnsley the place of possibilities where residents and visitors feel safer.
Through the survey, the partnership hopes to understand the public’s view of crime and anti-social behaviour in the borough. This information will be used to plan the next set of priorities that the Partnership will focus on in 2022-2023. You can give your views online.
SBPB is a joint partnership between Barnsley Council, South Yorkshire Police, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, National Probation Trust, South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group. Together they work with housing associations, local businesses and voluntary and community organisations to help people feel safe and enjoy where they live and work.
Cllr Jenny Platts, Cabinet Spokesperson for Communities, said: “I urge everyone to take part in this survey and share their views and thoughts on crime and anti-social behaviour in Barnsley. It really does help the partnership to understand the full picture of how people feel in the borough, and help shape the next set of plans and priorities. We want to hear from residents across the borough to really understand how we can help to make them feel safer in Barnsley.”
You can give your views online. Residents who don’t have access to the internet can visit their local library where they can access the online survey.
The survey can be completed before midnight on Thursday 14 October.
This work links into the council’s Barnsley 2030 strategy, where we’re working together to make Barnsley the place of possibilities. Under the Sustainable Barnsley theme, we’re working to protect our borough for future generations.
