Mary with with representatives of the Co-Op, Anti-Social Behaviour Officers, the police and local business on Friday 6th May to discuss the ongoing issue of anti-social behaviour around the shops and library on Lowland Road in Brandon.

After being told of the scale of the issue, Mary wanted to engage constructively with local shareholders to discuss the issue and make sure there are adequate responses in the local area.

The meeting was productive and informative and actions have been discussed to make sure that this work is fruitful.

After the meeting Mary said

I was really pleased to join everyone to discuss the issue of anti-social behaviour, and all groups were in agreement that steps could be taken to minimise this to make the area feel safer and more welcoming for residents.

Of course we know that the best way to tackle anti-social behaviour is through proper provisions for young people, which have been consistently cut by successive Tory governments over the last decade.

I will be following this matter up with the council, the police and the landlord to help ensure that positive changes are made for the people of Durham. I will also make sure to hold this government to account over the cuts it has made which have created this environment and arguing for better and more targeted funding for local authorities.
