The City Council has received a number of complaints from residents regarding street drinking and associated anti-social behaviour in Shirley Road.
Southampton City Council and the Police have taken a range of actions to tackle anti-social behaviour in the area. Having been informed of the problems, this is what the council did:
- Increased police patrols in the area and used powers to seize alcohol.
- Identified those responsible for the problems and warned them about their behaviour.
- Removed a bench they were using a place to congregate.
- Visited local off licences and asked them not to serve to the main instigators of the problems in the area.
The council will continue to monitor the situation and take further action to deal with any further concerns that are raised.
