City NPT Neighbourhood Priorities 

After consultation with yourselves, the community safety partnership, and partners. Please find below our NPT priorities for the Spring/Summer period: 

Tyrrel Square (Junction of Ivegate and Tyrel St)

There have been a number of historical issues at this location relating to ASB. In recent months it has been identified that the frequency of antisocial behaviour has increased specifically with respect to groups gathering and engaging in the misuse of alcohol and other illicit substances. Alongside tackling the behaviour of individuals, the City Neighbourhoods team are looking at the environmental design challenges at this location. Working in partnership with the council, crime prevention, Bradford BID, Outreach services and the neighbourhood support teams, we plan to tackle the issues from a variety of directions. 

Fast Food Restaurant, Kirkgate

The neighbourhood team are working closely with operators of the restaurant with regards to large groups of youths gathering both inside and around the premises. Over several weeks the premises has become a very popular location for young adults to meet others, travelling from area’s across the Bradford district. Such large groups can be intimidating and cause nuisance to others in the city centre and also be difficult for the staff at locus to effectively manage. We are exploring a number of possible solutions and control measures with the management team to reduce the negative impact of the groups.

Bradford Interchange

Bradford Interchange is the main transport hub within the district, hosting both buses and the local rail service. Alongside those passing through on their daily commute for work or school attendance it is also the main gateway for large numbers of youths into the city centre for leisure, particularly in an evening.
There are longstanding ASB issues at the station where youths gather for long periods of time as they arrive into the city and again prior to leaving. As the weather improves, evenings are lighter and COVID restrictions are now largely behind us, numbers have steadily increased in the City Centre and this has lead to an increase in the frequency of issues relating to ASB.

City Neighbourhoods are working closely with the security team and our partners in youths services to identify those at the station who frequently behave badly and direct them through the ASB process. Utilising both diversion pathways and where necessary, prosecution when individuals will not engage.
