Community Safety Public Consultation

Last updated on: 01-Mar-2021

Under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, statutory partners have a legal duty to work together to reduce crime and improve community safety in their area. In Gravesham, our Community Safety Partnership brings together the following key partner agencies to work collaboratively towards this aim:

  • Gravesham Borough Council
  • Kent Police
  • Kent Fire and Rescue Service
  • Kent County Council
  • Kent Surrey and Sussex Community Rehabilitation Company
  • NHS Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Kent Police and Crime Commissioner

Our Partnership is also chaired by the Council’s Elected Member with Community Safety in their portfolio to ensure that there is democratic oversight.

Whatever your age, circumstances or background, feeling safe in your home and when you are out and about will matter to you. It also matters to us. This survey was being used to find out which community safety issues are most important to you – whether you are new to the area, have lived here for a long time, if you are in Gravesham regularly for work or to study or if you visit the Borough in your free time.  Even if you have completed a Community Safety Survey before, we would like to hear from you again.

We wanted as many views as possible, from people of all ages and backgrounds and from different parts of the Borough – people’s experiences of and concerns about community safety can be very different depending on their circumstances – it’s important that the work we do reflects these experiences and concerns as far as possible. Your comments will help us to target the work we do to prevent and reduce crime and to protect you, your family and our neighbourhoods.

The consultation period closed on the 28 February 2021, We will have the results posted on the website alongside the new Community Safety Strategy for 2021-24 soon.
