We asked

What are your main concerns around crime and disorder where you live

You said

Each area is different although there were some issues that overlapped such as the drugs problem across Reading

We did

All the results were fed back to each Safer Neighbourhood Forum who have started to consider actions in those areas you highlighted.  Feedback was also provided to Traffic colleagues around parking issues and streetcare colleagues re potholes and litter.

The purpose of this survey is to ask residents their views about issues such as crime and disorder, litter, parking and anti-social behaviour amongst other local issues, to help identify priorities across Reading.  The Safer Neighbourhood Forums (formerly known as Neighbourhood Action Groups) are required to consult on priorities with a community safety focus every 2 years.  

Why your views matter

This community safety survey is being carried out across Reading to inform our neighbourhood working and local safer neighbourhood forums to find out what issues residents consider to be their highest priority at present.  Whilst we will consider all issues raised in this survey, we will not be able to impact on all of them.  Feedback from this survey will be looked at in conjunction with the Community Safety Partnership (CSP) priorities for Reading and locally reported crime across the Borough alongside the British Crime Survey and priorities identified by Thames Valley Police.  Priorities will then be set accordingly.

What happens next

An analysis of the survey will be broken down early in the New Year (2018) and fed back to the Safer Neighbourhood Groups and the Safer Neighbourhood Group Forum
