Abingdon Watch Plus
The streets covered are Abingdon road, Abingdon way, Byland way and part of fisher road ws3 area. The scheme was started about 9 years ago when there was an outbreak of drug dealing in the area, combined with an escalation of anti-social behaviour and other petty crime. This was developed to aid individuals get help to sort out their particular needs via police, Walsall housing group, the council, and other groups that may help facilitate justice and or mediation to help resolve a problem. We initially had meetings once a month, but find it more efficient to use a cascade method, e.g.: e-mail, telephone, word of mouth. At one time the scheme went estate wide via the Mossley residents and tenants association, though in recent years has shrunk back to its original scale as the residents and tenants association declined.
