Barking and Dagenham residents asked to complete anti-social behaviour survey
Residents are urged to share their experience of how anti-social behaviour is being tackled in council housing across the borough.
The council’s safer and stronger community select committee has commissioned an online survey to find out what kind of problems people have experienced, and how effectively they have been dealt with.
By taking part, residents will be entered into a draw to win prizes, including an iPod Nano.
Cllr Margaret Mullane, chair of the committee, said: “We want to build up an accurate picture of what people’s experiences are, so we’d like to get a good range of responses from our residents.
“Of course, we would always encourage residents to report anti-social behaviour to the police or council, and we have the official statistics.

“However, we hope this survey will give people the chance to tell us what they have seen in their neighbourhoods, and what problems they might have had.”
She said the authority is focusing on council housing because it, as a landlord, has a “particular responsibility”.
