Action on antisocial behaviour

Andrea Reiner and Tim Bick

Lib Dems have taken action aimed at reducing alcohol- related antisocial behaviour in the city centre.

Local campaigner Andrea Reiner commented, “I live in the Park Street Area and noise from late night drinking consistently wakes my young children at night.  This will only get worse as the weather improves.”

Lib Dems have called for a review of all the methods available to tackle this problem. A report will be brought to area committee on 24th Feb.

“We want to check that all the powers are being used effectively,” says Councillor Tim Bick.

The City’s Community Safety Partnership is set to adopt alcohol- related violent crime as one of 3 priorities in its new 3-year plan.

Tim Bick represents the Council in the Partnership.

Andrea Reiner also welcomed moves by the Lib Dems in government to allow the council to impose a levy on late night licenses.
