Neighbourhood Priorities

Dewsbury East Ward

  • Town Centre Drinkers and General ASB - High Demand Location Occurrence in place.  We, with colleagues at the Council, are conducting hi visibility patrols utilising Anti-Social Behaviour management tactics to prevent further issues occurring.
  • To engage, disrupt and divert anti-social youths around Wakefield Road, Earlsheaton Park and Bywell Fields, We will, use increased visibility patrols, partnership problem solving approaches and anti-social behaviour management tactics to identify, educate and prevent further issues occurring.
    Dewsbury South Ward
  • To target anti-social use and speeding on Mill Street East, Savile Town, Dewsbury.  We will also be running regular speed checks on this road and taking positive action against offending drivers.
  • We will use the Op Taskabbey Off Road Team to deal with Nuisance Bikes and their riders, offenders will be dealt with by the use of Section 59 Traffic Regulations initially, which would see the seizure of the bike if it was found to be behaving anti-socially again and/or summonsing the riders to Court.
