The Graffiti Strategy Group reconvened last week after an extended break. The Group was asked to focus not so much on ways to keep premises clean but on ways to prevent graffiti and to punish and rehabilitate young offenders.
The discussion was wide-ranging and imaginative and some concrete actions were agreed.
The Police will be taking a tougher line and will be running media campaigns to put the message across that graffiti vandalism is not cool and will not be tolerated.
The Youth Offending Team (YOT) will work with young offenders to make them clean up the twittens in Bond Street. And the Group will work in partnership to experiment with a range of preventative solutions to protect retail premises.
Meanwhile, the Business Forum, the Business Communtiy Partnership and YOT will continue to clean hot spots and encourage traders to look after their own properties.
Due to the sensitive nature of the subjects discussed the minutes will not be posted on the site but anyone interested should contact Soozie Campbell on 01273 380040 or at email@example.com.
