The Committee and I are currently analysing the full year’s data; following which we will prepare a report with which we hope to persuade the Corporation to introduce additional measures to help deter anti-social behaviour from occurring across the estate.

Meantime, The Barbican Association’s General Council has agreed that reporting should carry on until further notice as most asb incidents occur during the summer months each year.
