How concerned are you about crime in your local area? Do you feel safe where you live?
The Stevenage Community Safety Partnership (CSP)* is inviting local residents and visitors to share their views on how safe they feel in their local communities, by taking part in a ‘Feelings of Safety’ survey, which is now live online.
The survey will assist in identifying areas of concern and help the CSP to understand the reasons that people may not feel safe in Stevenage. The feedback will then be used to help shape local safety improvements.
Stevenage Safer Neighbourhood Inspector Pat McPeake said: “This survey is another way that our local communities can tell us how they feel and let us know what they think we should be focusing on.
“It will provide us with vital information to help us work with our partners, such as Stevenage Borough Council, to develop ways to make people feel safer.
“Every response will be looked at and although the CSP might not be able to fix everything, it will try and make improvements to benefit as many people as possible.
“It is your opportunity to have your voice heard and gives us a clear idea of how you feel about the area you live or work in. We can then work together to build safe environment in which to live, study and work.”
* The Stevenage CSP consists of local organisations including Stevenage Borough Council, police, fire, housing associations, probation and health services, who work to keep Stevenage a safe place to live, work and visit.
