Neighbourhood Priorities

Drug issues continue to be a concern around Raby Gate and Glendale Terrace.


  • Byker Wall / Glendale Terrace





We are aware that drug supply and drug abuse continues to be an issue for some residents of the Byker Wall.


During the last quarter of 2017 officers executed 10 search warrants in the Byker area and secured 3 Closure Orders in relation to Drug supply.


Prosecutions are pending for those persons involved in these matters.


Businesses and residents are expressing concern regarding drug users behaving antisocially in the areas of Raby Gate and Glendale Terrace.


We are keen to identify those responsible for Drug supply and we will continue to manage those users who are dependent upon that supply.


Multi-agency work and diversionary schemes for users continues across the city and out-reach teams will engage with users in the Byker Area.


Any information regarding Drug supply can be passed to the Local Neighbourhood Team , Housing Office or anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
