REGIONAL CRIME MAPS:
Neighbourhood Statistics...This is a very useful site which brings together lots of facts and figures and then maps it to a local neighbourhood. Once again you can type in your Postcode on the right hand side and it will take you into the statistics for your local area. The Country has been divided in to 32,482 'Super Output Areas'...each with approximately 1500 people in it. Have a look at the map and check out whether the area you are looking at is the area you think of as 'your' neighbourhood. In Towns and Cities the super output areas can be very small and you may live on the edge of one and be concerned about information for the one next door: www.neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk
Fix my Street...This is an interactive website where you can report issues affecting your area. Start with a Postcode and a Map will appear. You can then report your concern in a short statement. The site sends your report to the relevant Local Council within a few minutes. It also sends you an email saying it has been done and asking you to keep 'Fix My Street' informed of what happens. After a few weeks 'Fix My Street' will email you again to ask you to update them on whether the problem was resolved!
People have reported dumped cars, noisy motorbikes, litter. graffiti, potholes...all sorts of issues. You can also check out what other reports have been made near you, as well as sign up to receive updates from the website when anyone reports anything in 'your' area. This tool is used by some councillors and could be useful to know what other people's concerns are locally: www.fixmystreet.com
