In the spotlight

£550,000 has been awarded to further improve the

Westcliff estate.

The bid was made by us and the office of the Police & Crime

Commissioner for Humberside from the Home Office Safer

Streets Fund. The grant will fund a project aiming to improve

the security of homes and the community.

Features of the project being considered include installing

new entrance doors and systems for communal flats on the

closes, secure cycle storage units, and communal fencing to

reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.

There will also be new communal gardens built, a £10,000

community grant that groups of Westcliff residents can

apply for, and a community fund encouraging residents

to submit ideas for what would make them feel safer in their

home and neighbourhood.

Lots of tenant consultation has already taken place.

An initial letter was sent to all residents of the closes, and

numerous pop-up events have safely taken place throughout the

neighbourhood for local people to give their feedback.

A specific web page has also been created to

provide further updates and where people can submit their

ideas, plus there have been regular online videos to keep

residents informed.

Rachel Woodliffe, chair of the Westcliff (and surrounding areas)

Association, said: "It's great news that this funding has been

secured, and it'll help local residents and the community in so

many ways.

"Not only will it help to offer even more support and security, but

it will also provide even more opportunities for us to thrive and

make it an even prouder place to call home."
