The council’s Neighbourhood Nuisance team works with residents to solve issues that affect their communities. The team receives around 3,500 reports a year, and deal with around 1,300 perpetrators of antisocial behaviour.

They have 18 enforcement officers working across the city, and work closely with Humberside Police to resolve and tackle problems faced by individuals and communities.

Cllr Rob Pritchard, Portfolio Holder for Communities, Crime Prevention and Culture, said: “We are determined to make sure resident’s views are listened to, and residents tell us all the time that crime and anti-social behaviour are top concerns for them.

“That’s why Not Where I Live Week will be an important opportunity for the Council and the Police to hear direct from residents about their experiences of antisocial behaviour.  

“If you’re not able to make it to a drop-in, you’re encouraged to make a report online or over the phone”.
