The consultation is asking people for their views about crime and disorder in the borough as well as what it’s like to live in their local area.
Leader of Maidstone Borough Council Cllr David Burton said:
“Maidstone Borough Council has been working closely with Kent Police and partners to challenge people’s behaviour in the borough. Initiatives, such as increased Police presence in the town centre during the summer, have been introduced and it will be interesting to hear from people and understand if they have noticed any differences, both recently and in the last three years.”
“We are fully committed to improving how safe people feel in the borough and we know we cannot do this without the help of Kent Police and many other agencies. The Safer Maidstone Partnership, where many agencies work collaboratively to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and drug and alcohol misuse, will also use the results of this consultation to develop priorities and ensure services are focused on those issues supported by both the intelligence and the perceptions our residents have about safety in the borough.
“Anyone can take part in the consultation, this really is a perfect opportunity for everyone to engage with us and let us know of any issues they have in their local area.”
