Eastfield Estate in Cramlington became the centre of attention last week as  Northumbria Police and Northumberland County Council joined forces in a community Week Of Action on the estate.
Throughout the week a range of activities took place including  high visibility patrols by officers and council staff to meet and talk to local residents about concerns they may have in their neighbourhood.
Problem tenants have been  issued advice, while street clean-ups and litter picks have been carried out by the council’s neighbourhood services team.
A drop-in session at  the Pavillion  provided  the opportunity for residents to talk on an individual and confidential basis to local neighbourhood teams and put forward any ideas they may have to improve their community. A money advice worker was also present to address residents financial concerns.
A senior youth worker  spent time on the estate talking to teenagers about issues they may be facing and helping them access any support services they may require.
Cramlington Neighbourhood Inspector Pam Bridges said: "Work to keep Cramlington safe is on-going throughout the year but this operation was based around specific concerns that were raised to us by local residents.
 "They told us they wanted us to do more around tackling anti-social behaviour, littering and nuisance tenants. We hope they have noticed an improvement following the week of action and encourage people to get in touch with their feedback.
 "Working with partners allows us to solve problems in a number of ways and leads to better results. The public can be reassured that although this week of action is over  the activity in the area will continue throughout the new year."
Northumberland County Councillor Allan Hepple, cabinet member for housing said: " We take resident’s concerns seriously and a vital part of the week involved talking to local people to understand in greater detail what’s happening in the area and where they might need support. Thank you to everyone who  participated."
Northumberland County Councillor and ward member Laura Pidcock said:
"The week provided a  great opportunity for local residents to get help and advice  about things that may be concerning them. It’s great that so many people got  involved and we hope it will make a lasting difference to the area."
