Making neighbourhoods safer

We want you to be proud of the communities you live in. Our neighbourhood officers work hard to ensure that you have a pleasant, safe place to call home and if needed they are able to unlock additional funding to improve your local area. 

Amanda Hammond a neighbourhood officer in Dorset, did just that and recently made a Dorset community safer by using money available to her, to fence a communal garden. 

The garden opened onto a road and parking area where cars would often park on the grass, putting residents at risk. 

The now fenced garden has created a much safer environment for children to play in and most residents couldn’t be happier. One resident commented:

“The garden can now be used; our kids are safer and everyone in the block talks to each other in the garden."
