We're heading to Shortroods

The successful Your Home, Your Street, Our Community programme is set to get underway in Shortroods after local people submitted their views of what needs addressed in the area.

A survey of more than 160 local people outlined the key issues that they feel need to change and the Renfrewshire Community Safety Partnership are working to produce an action plan which will tackle these problems.

Among the issues identified were underage drinking, litter, bogus callers and problems with drug dealing.

The local community also requested a more visible police presence in the area, more activities to be provided for young people and a crackdown on dog fouling within the area.

The intervention period will last for three months with all partners playing a role, including Police Scotland, Renfrewshire Council, Scottish Fire and Rescue and the Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership.

The programme aims to work alongside the community while carrying out intervention work to ensure that there is a lasting benefit to the area following the conclusion of the three-month period.

A follow up survey will take place following the intervention to identify the improvements made and continue the link with the local community and the partners involved.
