Saturday action on Anti Social Behaviour
Before the advice bureau I visited one of the places which has a particular anti-social behaviour problem. One of my objectives is to improve this area (which I won't identify for the moment.)
One of the most cost effective mechanisms for improving areas is action on anti-social behaviour. I achieved my personal record for an eviction of 12 working hours recently in that area.
Other changes are needed, however, many of which are superficial - improving fencing, painting things.
I found it nice how many people were willing to talk to me on the street. The recent action on drug dealing has gone down very well.
The later advice bureau suffered from the fact that our office was flooded out during the week so I had to do the advice bureau from car seats.
The advice bureau is still surprisingly busy. Homelessness remains the most intractable issue - mainly because of the shortage of properties. I did find three flats that have not been occupied in the three years since they were built today. I need to find out why that is.
