Partnership approach to community safety in Caerphilly county borough
Posted on : 04 May 2021
Residents in the Caerphilly county borough are being assured that issues around community safety are being proactively dealt with through a partnership approach.
Caerphilly County Borough Council is working closely with Gwent Police to review all aspects of community safety. Several formal meetings have been arranged, which will include consideration of the impact of the Council’s part night lighting policy.
Cllr Philippa Marsden, the Council’s Leader, said “The safety of our communities is our key priority and we are working actively with Gwent Police to do all that we can to ensure this. These formal meetings demonstrate our commitment to review all aspects of community safety throughout the county borough.
We understand that there are concerns amongst some members of the public regarding the implementation of part night lighting; I’d like to assure them that this will be reviewed in partnership with Gwent Police and whether this has had any impact on crime levels. This will also be considered closely in line with our ongoing commitments to reach our carbon savings target and any cost benefits we get as a result, will ensure other services to residents are not impacted as a result of any changes to our part night lighting policy.”
