The rise in anti-social behaviour in Hamble and Netley is a major concern and I have raised this directly with Hampshire Police and Donna Jones, our new Police and Crime Commissioner to see what more can be done. I was pleased Donna made time to meet so early on in her new job and that she understood the importance of this concern to local people. A number of options are being considered including a local beat surgery which I will share more details of shortly.
Donna Jones, Hampshire Police & Crime Commissioner also added:
“The ongoing Anti-Social Behaviour in Netley Abbey has escalated beyond acceptable levels with groups of youths causing disturbances over the last few weeks.
“A number of residents have been in touch with me about these problems and Eastleigh MP, Paul Holmes, has also raised it with me. I’ll be working with Hampshire Police to bring this issue under control as soon as possible.”
