Some Barbican residents, especially those wishing to sell their properties and move on, have expressed concern regarding fuller details of asb incidents being reported. They feel that such data portrays the estate in a negative way. It has therefore been decided not to provide this information on the Barbican Association’s website. This information, however, will continue to be collected and forwarded to the City of London Police and Barbican Estate Management.

It is intended to continue asking residents to report any asb incidents they may observe/witness until the 19th June 2022 as this will mean that we will have a full year’s data with which to persuade the Corporation to introduce additional measures to help deter anti-social behaviour from occurring across the estate.
