Planning for the Evening

In the context of current legislation, with the help of evening economy businesses, local Police, transport operation and CCTV provision, it is vital to understand how anti-social behaviour can be minimised whilst ensuring the town centre supports a vibrant night scene. A detailed and achievable plan which draws on a town centre’s strengths and weaknesses in the evening should be developed and implemented in consultation with the relevant stakeholders.

Your local partnership group should contain a broad range of stakeholders to ensure you're hearing the experiences, successes and problems of the people on the ground and responsible for managing the environment. Your 'evening plan' can be tailored to your local needs, so if you're a city with a large student population and nightclub scene, your plan will be very different from a market town looking to put on an evening cinema club and night market experience for local families.
