People will only come into town, particularly at night, if they feel safe. There should be obvious enforcement presence in the town, backed by more obvious CCTV. Whilst there has been more prosecutions for spitting and littering lately, this needs to increase and be publicised as a deterrent.
Fly tipping in all areas of the borough needs to be tackled. Prosecutions must happen. A lot of tipping (mattresses etc) seems to come from the private rented housing. Regular engagement with landlords of private rented properties and multiple occupancy houses.
A landlord registration scheme should be introduced for all private rented homes so that the authorities know who manages a property. More resources needs to be allocated to this as it seems that a lot of problems stem from a minority of unscrupulous landlords spoiling things for the law abiding public (eg fly tipping, anti social behaviour, littering, noise, etc).
