Community Response Fund
The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Jonathan Evison has announced a third round of funding from his Community Response Fund, targeting crime and community safety at a local level by directly responding to issues identified by the public that are affecting their neighbourhoods and local areas.
The PCC’s Community Response Fund (CRF) is a project which responds directly to the issues that the public have identified via Humber Talking, the engagement tool used by the PCC and Humberside Police which asks residents key questions about the issues that affect their community, for example, road safety, criminal damage, drug dealing and antisocial behaviour.
Following successful pilot rounds earlier this year, Round 3 of the fund will focus on seven specific local areas, providing funding for projects that seek to address a key issue identified by residents that is impacting on their neighbourhoods. For Bridlington South, this investment is also linked to the Clear, Hold, Build initiative.
The Fund will provide up to £10,000 in each area to fund a project to address Antisocial Behaviour:
- Barton Upon Humber, North Lincolnshire
- Crowle, North Lincolnshire
- Kirton in Lindsey, North Lincolnshire
- Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire
- Goole, East Riding of Yorkshire
- Hornsea, East Riding of Yorkshire
The fund will also aid the reduction in Antisocial Behaviour through an investment of up to £17,500 in two projects that support the delivery of the Clear, Hold, Build initiative in
- Bridlington South, East Riding of Yorkshire
Antisocial Behaviour in Barton upon Humber
Feedback from the public via Humber Talking has highlighted Antisocial Behaviour as the number one issue raised in the town.
The Barton Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) are aware that some residents, plus retail premises including the Co-op and Heron Foods, are suffering with regular antisocial behaviour from a cohort of youths. Groups of youths are also gathering at the bus and train station.
Whilst the majority of young people in these groups don't cause any problems, there is a minority whose behaviour understandably causes frustration to the community, leaving some residents and shop workers feeling intimidated. The NPT are working with partner agencies including Baysgarth School, Youth Justice Partnership, Children’s Services and Safer Neighbourhoods, plus local drug and mental health services.

Antisocial behaviour in Crowle
There has been an increase in Antisocial Behaviour (ASB) across Axholme North, particularly in Crowle. The local NPT has continued to engage with partners at North Lincolnshire Council, Safer Neighbourhoods and local schools in a bid to reduce ASB incidents in the area.
Joint site visits have also taken place in an attempt to identify how partners can work together to design out crime in the area.

Antisocial behaviour in Kirton in Lindsey
Data received through Humber Talking has highlighted Antisocial Behaviour as the number one issue that the local community is concerned about. Parks and community assets have been subjected to vandalism and a number of incidents reported to the Police.
The Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) in the area continues to engage with the local community and deter potential antisocial behaviour in in Kirton-In-Lindsey. Antisocial behaviour continues to be raised by the local community as the area of greatest concern.

Anti-social behaviour in Beverley
Feedback from the public via Humber Talking has highlighted Antisocial Behaviour as the number one issue raised in Beverley.
Funding through the Safer Streets Fund has enabled some positive work aimed at improving the safety of public spaces in the Flemingate area of Beverley but the issue of antisocial behaviour in the wider town centre area continues to be raised by the public.

Anti-social behaviour in Hornsea
Antisocial behaviour remains a specific area of concern highlighted via Humber Talking data. The Neighbourhood Policing Team are undertaking preventative patrols and working with other agencies and local providers to address issues reported including:
- youths on motorcycles causing a nuisance on Rolston Road and Cliff Road
- youths setting fires at Hall Garth Park, Longbeach Caravan Site and near the pumping station on the sea front
- the conduct of street drinkers particularly around the Greenway estate in Hornsea. Individuals have had alcohol seized (no drinking zone), cannabis seized and been reported for urinating in the street.

The ‘Clear’ phase of the Bridlington South Clear, Hold, Build programme is well underway. Through the CRF, we are proposing two projects which will help the area to ‘hold’ and help to ‘build’ community resilience. This round of the CRF in Bridlington South has a particular focus on supporting young people, reducing antisocial behaviour and providing positive activities that will ultimately help prevent organised crime from returning to the area.
Data from Humber Talking, the Neighbourhood Policing Team and engagement activities in the town have also identified antisocial behaviour, particularly as a result of drug use, as a key that needs to be addressed.
As part of the CRF, we are proposing two projects which will help reduce instances of antosocial behaviour in this part of the town and provide positive opportunities in the local area. In particular, we are keen to see projects:
- Focus on clear, positive outcomes for young people and which empower young people to have a voice
- Demonstrate how the target audience has been engaged in the development of the proposed activities
- Link to existing other partners and organisations to encourage ongoing support outside of the project’s delivery and timescales
- Utilise innovative approaches
