Beating ASB in Springfield

Hard on the heels of the news that the Dispersal Order in Springfield School is to be extended until April 2007, there was further good news today for residents that a CCTV camera is to be sited in Nightingale Avenue.

The camera should allay lingering concerns as to how the relative peace which has broken out whilst the Dispersal Order has been in force will be preserved when the Order finally runs out.

As I've blogged before, both Nightingale Avenue and Springfield Playing Field have been the targets of some of the most chronic anti-social behaviour problems over the past 5 years anywhere in Darlington. The partnership between residents, the Police and the Council has produced concrete action which the camera exemplifies.
