The council has been successful in its bid for £550,000 of funding as part of the Ashfield Community Safety Partnership, from the governments Safer Streets fund. 

The bid was submitted along with other partnership agencies that make up the Ashfield Community Safety Partnership, including the police, fire service and county council.

The funding will be used to tackle ongoing problems in the New Cross area, as well as the wider area of Sutton. 

Proposed projects include new CCTV cameras, improved street lighting, a school’s programme, investment in number plate recognition and a new community cohesion lead.

“It is important that residents feel safe within the communities they live. This money will allow us to tackle ongoing issues with crime and anti-social behaviour in New Cross. This is a significant amount of money and it will have a real impact on the residents of the New Cross area. The Council, as part of the Ashfield Community Safety partnership is committed to making Ashfield a safe place to live, work and visit.”
