Have your say

Blackpool Council has announced its top community safety priorities for the upcoming three years.

Antisocial behaviour, domestic abuse, physical violence, sexual offences and child sexual exploitation are top of the list for issues the Council hopes to tackle in 2016 until 2019.

The priorities were decided by the Blackpool Community Safety and Drugs Partnership alongside Blackpool Council, Lancashire Constabulary, Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group and Lancashire Fire and Rescue. Assessments were carried out to identify the crimes which caused the most harm to victims.

Now the council is inviting residents to have their say on the decisions that will affect them. Peoplecan voice their opinions online in a survey which can be accessed via the council website at www.blackpool.gov.uk.
