Southampton Safer Streets investment

01 October 2020

Earlier this year, the Police and Crime Commissioner was able to secure £550,000 from the Home Office’s Safer Streets Fund – a fund designed to enable PCCs to work with their partners to invest in proven interventions to prevent crime in the areas that are worst affected by acquisitive crime. 

The £550,000 are being invested in the area of Bargate Ward in Southampton. Work has been underway in the last four weeks to develop the detailed proposal, which includes four key locations:

  • Vincents Walk
  • Kingsland Estate (including Kingsway subway, Cassocks Green, Broad Green, and Palmerston Road)
  • Hoglands Park
  • St Mary Street (including Winton Street)

Proposed measures in these locations include:

  • Improved fencing and gating in residential areas
  • Improved street lighting
  • Increased CCTV monitoring
  • General environmental improvements and maintenance to reduce secluded hiding spots and open up areas for community use.

All work is being undertaken in partnership with Southampton City Council, the Safe City Partnership, GO!Southampton and other key community partners following statutory guidance and processes.  The project is due to be completed by 31 March 2021.
