I have joined forces with the Police and Crime Commissioner, Matthew Scott to tackle anti-social behaviour within Dover, Deal and affected local villages. The move follows complaints made at my regular MP surgeries about incidents of anti-social behaviour across the area.
Anti-social behaviour is not acceptable. I have contacted local police outlining my concerns and called for greater joint working with Kent Police and the Dover District Council community team to tackle the isolated incidents of anti-social behaviour that rightly cause annoyance and concern. This is as much in our villages as in the towns. In our villages misuse of off-road motorbikes and fly-tipping have caused a lot of concern.
To help focus efforts to deal with anti-social behaviour, Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Scott has launched an anti-social behaviour survey to gather views on the issues facing Dover, Deal and local villages.
This survey is important to make sure that concerns are getting the right attention and resources.
I encourage everyone interested in this matter to take a few minutes to complete the survey to continue to improve our lovely areas.
