We did:

After a public meeting which highlighted school intervention by Police it was agreed that the Middle school would be included alongside the High school to discuss a variety of options/subjects, one being anti-social behaviour.

Resources have been allocated into the area, both high viz and plain clothes patrols. The mounted section was utilised in the locations that were identified as being areas that the youths gathered.   

Working with multi agency partners the Youth service conducted several engagement visits to the area, speaking with the youths to identify if and what youth provisions they would like. 

The parish council have been involved in the process from conducting environmental assessments/assessing cctv provisions.
