Neighbourhood Warden Service
What is the Neighbourhood Warden Service?
In addition to taking action against individuals, the Housing Division has a Neighbourhood Warden Service. We have four Wardens based in different areas of the Borough who are pro-active within the community in tackling nuisance issues on estates and provide a link between the community, Police, Local Authority and other Partner Agencies. Wardens do not have any power of arrest they are:
- Eyes and ears of the local community
- Deal with anti social behaviour on estates
- Pick up litter
- Report abandoned cars
- Attend local meeting with Tenants
- Report vandalism and disrepair
- Report graffiti
By working closely with the community and being seen in the area they promote partnership working to deal with issues of concern.
