Due to the continued financial situation imposed on Lambeth Council by central government – which have seen a 56% cut in our funding since 2010 – the Council has had to make difficult decisions that are increasingly impacting on our frontline services.
Recent changes to the Community Safety Service has established a single point of contact for all Council related crime and disorder issues.
For the service to remain effective the Council has separated Anti Social Behaviour (ASB) / environmental / noise / enforcement teams and they have now been replaced by neighbourhood teams. The restructure of the community safety team does not affect the important work the council does with community groups and the Police to tackle gang violence.
ASB is an important issue and we will continue to work in partnership with our Safer Neighbourhood Team, our community leaders, and various residents groups.
Please make a note of the team’s contact details:
Community Safeguarding: 020 7926 5000
Police non-emergency number: 101
Please note, the Council will no longer provide an out of hours noise hotline. The new service will now assess every complaint and only respond if a complaint is judged to be having a serious community impact. Residents who are experiencing repeated noise issues will be contacted during office hours by the service and supported to tackle the problem (including out of hours visits if necessary).
