Safer Neighbourhoods Ward Panels

This is the page for the St Leonards Ward Safer Neighbourhoods Panel, and a source of information for the people of the area on Safer Neighbourhoods issues.

The St Leonards panel was formed on the 14th of June 2006 for the first time, with minutes  detailing the issues discussed and  on the 8th of January 2007. The constitution can be found  and the terms of reference of the Ward Panel are:

  • Set, and oversee, the priorities of the St Leonards Safer Neighbourhoods Team.
  • Review these priorities on a regular basis and change them if necessary.
  • Act as community representatives identifying issues of local concern which create fear of crime or affect the quality of life in an area.
  • Assist the police and the community with engagement and information flow.
  • Assist with problem solving and crime prevention activity.
  • Carry out environmental audits of the ward.
  • Provide the community with information on the status of, and progress with, the Ward team priorities.

We will keep you, the community, posted and updated on our work through this website, e-mail newsletters and  the community can download from our site. We do ask for  towards formulating the team's priorities for the community.
