Will residents please continue to report any asb incidents they may observe/witness until, at least, the 20th June 2022* as this will provide us with 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.

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