The East Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership is calling on people from South Holland, Boston Borough and East Lindsey to help set crime-fighting priorities, with a chance of winning £30 in high street vouchers.

The body’s annual survey will ask local communities what problems they feel need addressing, so they can take steps to prevent them in the future.

Based on last year’s results the partnership produced a three year strategy for tackling crime and boosting saftey.

The current priorities are anti-social behaviour, violent crime, community cohesion, alcohol misuse, theft from shops and cycle thefts.

In South Holland the group already works with various campaigns and schemes such as Alcohol Concern and Activate to alleviate concerns over drinking and anti-social behaviour.

The survey results will be used to fine tune current plans going forward.

Coun Nick Worth, portfolio holder for community safety, said: “This is an opportunity for the public to tell the partnership what issues concern them.

“Your input is vital to help the partnership tackle key problems in local areas.”

The survey is available now online at or you can pick up a hard copy at the council offices.

The closing date for responses is October 10.
