The Edinburgh Community Safety Partnership, on behalf of its partners and stakeholders including the City of Edinburgh Council and Police Scotland, are looking to consult with residents and visitors of Edinburgh about their experience and opinions of Antisocial Behaviour in Edinburgh. 

We want to know how antisocial behaviour affects you, what you think we should be doing about it and how you think we should be dealing with it over the next three years.

Your feedback will help shape our approach to tackling antisocial behaviour and will inform Edinburgh’s Antisocial Behaviour Strategy for 2016-19.

What happens next

The feedback we received from this consultation is currently being used to inform Edinburgh’s Antisocial Behaviour Strategy for 2016-19. The strategy will be subject to Committee approval in April 2016, and will then be publicly launched over summer 2016.
