Annual Tendring Fear Of Crime Survey

People in Tendring are being invited to have their say about their fear of crime.

The Tendring Community Safety Partnership (TCSP) is preparing to set its aims and priorities for the coming year.

Based on crime figures and information from partner agencies, including the police, TCSP has identified protecting vulnerable people; tackling anti-social behaviour and acquisitive crime; and reducing reoffending as its key priorities.

Now it wants to find out whether the public agrees with those priorities, and is giving residents and businesses the chance to help shape the way forward.

To give their views, people are being encouraged to carry out a short online survey.

Lynda McWilliams, TCSP Chairwoman, said this is an opportunity for the public to have their say.

“Though we have a good idea of what we should be focusing on for the next year, we also want to reflect what the public feel,” Cllr McWilliams said.

“They might have different ideas and, if so, we want to listen to those so they can be taken on board.

“This survey is about giving communities the chance to tell us about their fear of crime.”

The survey is quick and simple to complete, and looks at how safe people feel, whether that has changed over the last year, if they or a family member have been a victim of crime, and what they think is the main source of crime in Tendring.

The closing date for people to have their say is January 31, 2020.

Collections week commencing 6 January will be a day later, with Friday households collected on Saturday. Collections resume as normal on 13 January.

In addition to the above changes, for the first wheelie bin collection after Christmas each household will be allowed an additional two black bags of side waste.

Leisure centre users are also reminded to check the opening times for their facility as these may differ during the festive period, while the Princes Theatre Box Office may also have reduced opening times – though theatre-goers can purchase tickets online.

A Tendring District Council spokesperson said waste collection disruption was being kept to a minimum.

“We recognise the festivities can create additional waste, so we are taking the pressure off by allowing some additional waste for people’s first bin collection after Christmas,” they added.

“However, we would encourage people to continue recycling as much as possible, using additional boxes if required.”

People can find updated information on TDC’s Christmas services web page, which has full details of seasonal changes to services across the authority:

In an emergency which requires TDC’s assistance residents can contact the council’s Control Centre on 01255 222022, available 24/7.
