Ways to address ongoing issues around anti-social behaviour in Hadfield have been discussed at a meeting organised for local groups and organisations.
The Community Engagement and Anti-Social Behaviour Solution Summit was set up by Derbyshire county councillor for the area Becki Woods.
The meeting looked to address two issues, firstly, the current anti-social behaviour in the Hadfield area and secondly to look at ways of providing activities for children locally in the longer term.
Cllr Woods said: “We are all aware of the problems we have been experiencing as a community, but I am also conscious there is very little provision for children in the Hadfield area.
“So, one of the main reasons for getting all these organisations together was to see what we can do when we all work together as a team with a common purpose.
“I’m glad to say it was worth all the effort of organising it, and it was a very productive meeting.”
Representatives from the police, Derbyshire County Council, High Peak Borough Council, as well as community and volunteer groups and local schools were among those who attended.
The positive meeting discussed the issues and possible ways of improving the situation. More news is expected over the coming weeks.
