Why are we doing this?

The Safer Streets Fund is a £25m fund, available to Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC) in England and Wales in 2020/21.

PCCs were asked to work with partners, to design and deliver local crime prevention plans with the outcome of reducing acquisitive crimes through prevention, therefore making residents feel safer.

North Wales Bids

Following analysis of the areas in North Wales that met the criteria of being particularly affected by acquisitive crime, two bids were submitted to the fund, one being Queensway in Wrexham.

In July 2020 the Home Office announced that the North Wales bids were both successful, together with another 50 across England and Wales. The project for Queensway was awarded £550,000.

Queensway Allocation

 The funding will be used to include the following:       

 

  • Increase CCTV and ANPR coverage
  • Improve natural surveillance within the area through the provision of new lighting and upgrade of existing lighting.
  • Provide alley gating to control access to identified alleys.
  • Demolition of garage blocks, and replacing with car parking area (subject to planning permission).
  • Provide additional fencing outside of those currently being funded by the Borough Council.
  • Delivery and installation of 870 burglary crime prevention packs to those residents whose property is vulnerable to rear entry.
  • Training for community wardens and volunteers to allow the residents to take action themselves to prevent crime.
  • An Environmental Fund.
