THE NEXT MEETING of East Riding of Yorkshire Council ruling Cabinet of top councillors meets on Tuesday 18th January 2011.
The meeting will discuss a report on Anti-social behaviour (available in “Supporting Papers” from the ERYC website) which reviews the work done by the council and other agencies to tackle issues such as graffiti, neighbourhood disputes, dumped rubbish, vandalism, to loud music and public drinking.
The report concentrates on young people, but the authors emphasise that, despite public perceptions to the contrary, they did not feel that young people were the main group responsible for carrying out anti-social behaviour. The report clearly states the view that: “The vast majority of young people in the East Riding are an asset to the area, well behaved and law abiding.”
The main conclusions are that a range of organisations needed to work together in partnership more effectively to address the issues. In particular the report recommends that the role of town and parish councils in helping the police and other agencies should be explored, with the possibility of them acting as key agents in gathering and passing on local information.
The meeting takes place at County Hall, Beverley at 10.30am and is open to the public. Contact Gareth Naidoo, Committee Manager, Democratic Services on Tel: 01482 393206 for further information or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
