Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services submitted a report summarising the Community Safety Plan for Reading, 2019-22 as agreed by the Community Safety Partnership (CSP) on the 25th April 2019.  The Community Safety Plan 2019-22 was attached to the report at Appendix 1 and an Equality Impact Assessment was attached at Appendix 2.


The report noted that the CSP was required to carry out a strategic assessment of crime for its area, and that this had been carried out towards the end of 2018.  Priorities had been identified by an assessment against Threat, Harm and Risk to individuals and to Reading as whole.  The assessment had identified the following priorities, which had been agreed by the CSP at their meeting in April 2019:


·         Exploitation - incorporating both Adult Exploitation and Modern Slavery;


·         Violent Crime and Serious Anti-Social Behaviour - incorporating increasing violence against the person, knife possession and high level anti-social behaviour that had a significant impact on communities;


·         Class A Drugs - incorporating drug visibility, drug dealing activity from within and outside Reading, and drug related anti-social behaviour.


The Community Safety Plan attached to the report set out an analysis of these three priorities as well as a summary of the CSP structure, funding and other areas of work.


Resolved –


          That the Community Safety Plan 2019 – 2022, as attached to the report at Appendix 1, be agreed.
