Edinburgh’s Antisocial Behaviour Strategy for 2016

(Adapted from a post on Leith Links CC’s website)

The Edinburgh Community Safety Partnership, on behalf of its partners and stakeholders including the City of Edinburgh Council and Police Scotland, are looking to consult with residents and visitors of Edinburgh about their experience and opinions of antisocial behaviour in Edinburgh.

They want to know how antisocial behaviour affects you, what you think they should be doing about it and how you think they should be dealing with it over the next three years.

Your feedback will help shape their approach to tackling antisocial behaviour and will inform Edinburgh’s Antisocial Behaviour Strategy for 2016-19.

Please visit Edinburgh Council’s consultation hub to contribute.
