Police and council officials have said there has been ‘some improvement’ over problems with anti-social behaviour in Bramley – but have admitted there are still issues to tackle.
A report by the council’s Leeds Anti-Social Behaviour Team (LASBT) will update councillors on the Inner West Community Committee on Tuesday 6 September. The report states: “There are currently 29 cases open in the Bramley area with the stand-out focus still around youth related anti-social behaviour in the area.
“There are injunctions in place on a small number of the main perpetrators with many breach applications having been made on them. Whilst there has been some improvement in terms of calls the issues are still ongoing and unfortunately seems it could continue yet. We are continuously working with other agencies to try and tackle these issues and progress certainly has been made.”
The meeting, which will be held at Fairfield Community Centre in Bramley from 6pm, will also hear that work is ongoing within the “Little Scotland” bin yards in Armley and with a project team clearing 63 of the yards and removing 20 tonnes of waste. And 16 tonnes of general waste, 18 fridge freezers and two tonnes of road sweepings were removed from the Fairfields during the recent action day.
The meeting agenda can be found here.
The inner west community committee is made up of nine councillors from Armley, Bramley & Stanningley and Kirkstall wards, along with community representatives.
