Wirral West MP Margaret Greenwood has organised a public meeting in West Kirby to discuss residents’ concerns regarding anti-social behaviour.

This meeting will take place on Friday 8th February 2019 from 7:00 pm in the Church Hall of the West Kirby United Reformed Church, Meols Drive, West Kirby, Wirral CH48 5DA.

Representatives from Merseyside Police and Wirral Council will be in attendance, along with Cllr Liam Robinson, Chair of Merseytravel, and Cllr Emily Spurrell, Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside. 

Residents who wish to attend are requested to register by contacting Margaret Greenwood’s office on 0151 792 3416.

Margaret Greenwood MP said: 

“People should be able to enjoy public spaces in their community without the fear of encountering harassment or offensive behaviour. 

“In June I chaired a meeting about this issue that was very well attended by local residents.

“Since then, the police have made a concerted effort to tackle anti-social behaviour in West Kirby.

“Actions have included the implementation of dispersal zones, arresting key suspects and increasing the police presence in the area at crucial times. 

“However, given the limited resources that the police have, it is important that all relevant agencies work together with the local community to find constructive solutions to this problem. I am hopeful that this meeting will give us the opportunity to do this.

“I would encourage any local residents affected by these issues to attend the meeting to discuss their concerns.”
