The council is joining forces with the police and other community partners to run several street surgeries across the East Riding throughout the week to mark the launch of the UK’s second official ASB Awareness Week between Monday, 18 July and Sunday, 24 July 2022.

This includes a street surgery planned for Tuesday 19 July at Church Lane Car Park in Thorngumbald from 7pm – 8pm.

In addition, neighbourhood police and an officer from the Safer Communities team at ERYC will be in attendance to discuss local issues of concern at:

  • Market Hill, Hedon on Monday 18 July at 7pm
  • Paull (outside the Village Hall) on Tuesday 19 July at 4pm
  • Preston (outside the Community Hall) on Wednesday 20 July at 7pm

Organised by community safety specialists Resolve, ASB Awareness Week is being backed by the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), Local Government Association (LGA), National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and the National Fire Chiefs’ Council (NFCC).

Councillor David Elvidge, portfolio holder for community empowerment and voluntary sector at ERYC, said: “Anti-social behaviour can have a devastating impact on the lives of residents in some communities. That is why our hardworking ASB team at the council are having a strong presence on streets across the East Riding this week to give our residents the opportunity to speak to an officer fact-to-face about issues they may be aware of.

“ASB is always a challenge but by working alongside the police and other community partners, we believe we can make sure the East Riding remains a safe place for our residents to live.”

Rebecca Bryant OBE, chief executive of Resolve, said: “It is deeply concerning that despite the horrendous impact ASB can have, more than half of the people affected do not report it to anyone.

“This new polling data lays bare the worrying lack of knowledge that people have about their rights when it comes to tackling ASB. The challenge is clear – the ASB sector needs to do much more to communicate with the public and to raise awareness of the powers available, including the Community Trigger.

“I would urge all organisations with responsibility for community safety and tackling anti-social behaviour to take part in ASB Awareness Week 2022. It’s time to back our communities and work together to make them safer.”
