People in Mansfield district are being asked about their perceptions of community safety in the area and which types of crimes concern them most.

Mansfield District Council is running a six-week public consultation from 16 January to 27 February in which residents can offer their insight into the district’s main community safety problems.

The results of the survey will be used to help draw up the Mansfield Community Safety Partnership Plan to decide on its priorities for the coming three years.

The online survey is short and simple and can be accessed from the council’s consultations web pages by clicking here or directly via the survey link here.

Paper copies of the survey are also available by contacting the council of 01623 463463.

Participants in the survey are asked about how much crime or anti-social behaviour there has been in their area over the past year.

They also have a chance to say which types of crimes concern them the most, covering everything from cycling on the pavement and inconsiderate parking, to child sexual exploitation, cybercrime and modern day slavery.

Cllr Marion Bradshaw, Portfolio Holder for Community Safety, Housing and Wellbeing, said: “We are really interested to know what kind of issues concern our residents.

“We also want to know if there are things we’re getting right, too. So what is it about your area that makes you feel safe? Perhaps it’s something like good street lighting or maybe it’s your local Neighbourhood Watch scheme. Whatever it is, we’d love to know.”

In an emergency, call 999. Crimes can also reported anonymously to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
