Safe, Secure Streets
As a hub of social, political, cultural and economic activities, the town centre is a great place to be. Unfortunately, as with any place, this can attract undesired activities that damage the visitor experience and threaten an otherwise vibrant location. A lack of safety and security, or poor perceptions of these, can be enough to force shoppers to buy elsewhere and local businesses to follow them. However, successful efforts are being mounted across the country to improve the safety and security of all town centre users.
