New hotline for all Islington anti-social behaviour
A new 24 hour hotline to report all anti-social complaints in Islington is set to be launched in April.
Currently, there are myriad phone numbers for residents to call, depending on the type of problem and who manages the property.
But next year the council will cough up �215,000 to provide one number for all nuisance issues, including noise, anti-social behaviour and litter.
The new number will not replace 999, which should still be used for emergencies.
Cllr Catherine West, leader of Islington Council, said: “We hope this will make it easier and quicker for people to get what they need.
You may also want to watch:
“Neighbourhood nuisance and all kinds of issues can all be reported and logged to one service, which will have extra response on Friday and Saturday nights.”
Cllr West also promised the new number would see the buck for problems stop firmly with the council.
