Warwickshire receives visit from Home Office as work progresses with Safer Streets campaign

Leamington Editorial 3rd Apr, 2022   0

A REPRESENTATIVE from the Home Office, Ameerah Patel visited the Warwickshire Safer Streets project at its community engagement event at the Brunswick Hub.

The event was a chance for WCC to showcase the wider Safer Streets plan of action for specific locations throughout the county, including areas of south Leamington.

Partners including Warwickshire Police, Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service, Refuge, and  Victim Support attended the event.

As part of the event, officers from WCC and WDC undertook a walkabout of the area and highlighted areas that will be transformed as a result of the Safer Streets funding from National Government.

Coun Andy Crump, WCC spokesman for communities said: “The community event has proved very popular and we are thrilled to be able to talk to residents face-to-face about the improvements they would like to see in their neighbourhoods.

“The Safer Streets team continue to work hard with the funding available to make a real difference to individual streets where safety is a concern. I would urge residents to visit the Safe In Warwickshire website to find out more and to fill in a quick and simple survey.”

Polly Reed, CEO from the PCC office said: “It was a privilege to attend the event and hear all the great work that has been delivered in the area as well as engage with community members about what is important to them to ensure they feel safe”.
