George Davies

“Wirral residents have told us that being safe, and feeling safe, is the most important factor contributing to their quality of life. We have listened, and in response have developed this new strategy to make our communities even safer. We will do this through a new approach to tackle anti-social behaviour, focussing our resources where they will have the most impact and working in an even closer, more integrated way with partners such as Merseyside Police.


In the Wirral Plan we set out the following pledge: Unfortunately, the actions of a small minority can have a negative impact on the majority of residents. We are increasing our efforts to quickly and effectively deal with anti-social behaviour, including street drinking and neighbourhood noise issues.”


Councillor George Davies
