Cycling in pedestrian areas across Spalding is just the tip of the iceberg concerning anti-social behaviour.

That is the view of Coun Pete Williams in the week residents have been given the opportunity to help set the policing priorities for 2016.

He said: “Most nights recently there has been football in Hall Place – I’ve even seen someone on the roof at Boots trying to retrieve a ball.

“To me football in a public place is anti-social behaviour.

“You shouldn’t walk through the town centre and have to dodge footballs.”

Residents can have their say by completing the East Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership survey, which went live online this week.

The Partnership is a statutory body comprising police, district and county councils, fire and rescue, probation and health. It is required to undertake an annual review of crime and community safety issues and to produce a partnership plan to outline how it will tackle crime and anti-social behaviour and to make people feel safer.

Anti-social behaviour was one of the issues reviewed after last year’s survey. As a result, Activate programmes were introduced for young people.
