New Barbican prohibition signs

The new Barbican Prohibition Signs finally received planning consent on the 6th July and have been ordered. There are enamel, colourful measuring 300mm x 600mm approx. 1 foot  high x 2 feet in width and scheduled to arrive by the end of August. 

The new signs will be sited in approved locations in the main ‘problem areas’ of the estate where skateboarding, parkour, cycling and other forms of anti-social incidents have occurred most frequently. Wherever possible they will be sited nearby to the existing byelaw signs.

They will be erected in the agreed locations across the estate in early September.

Security News Update

In the next few days Barbican residents will receive details with their post of the website address of an easy-to-use computer programme entitled Anti-Social Behaviour Reporter.

This has been developed by the Barbican Estate Security Committee for residents to record simply any anti-social behaviour incident they may witness across the estate.

The results will be used to help inform future decisions and policy changes both for residents and local enforcement agencies.
