Community leaders and representatives from Dorset Police, Weymouth and Portland Borough Council, Synergy Housing and Dorset County Council have announced an open meeting for all those with an interest in the area.
The meeting will be held at 7.30pm on Wednesday, March 6, at St Francis Church, Littlemoor and not at Bincombe Court as previously advertised.
The meeting will inform people about the work that has gone on in recent weeks and what has been achieved in tackling issues, such as crime and anti-social behaviour.
“This meeting gives us the opportunity to directly update the residents regarding the action we have taken so far and what action is planned for the future.”
He added: “Residents who attend the meeting will also have the chance to air their views and ask questions.
“This meeting provides a great opportunity for the people of Littlemoor to influence the action we take in the future. We are listening to the community.”
Weymouth and Portland Borough Council spokesman for Community Safety, Geoff Petherick, said that the work that residents and partners had put into tackling anti-social behaviour in the area had been ‘very positive.’ He said: “There will be an opportunity for people to put forward their thoughts and views about dealing with issues that arise and I would really encourage the public to come along.”
Borough councilor for Littlemoor, Mark Tewkesbury said the meetings highlighted the ‘positive community spirit’ in the area and provided a platform for residents to share ‘their views on dealing with issues of anti-social behaviour to build a safer neighbourhood.’
