Tackling drugs in Keighley

I have been approached by a number of residents and businesses in Keighley asking me to look at the drugs issues in the area.

In October I sent out over 4,500 surveys to residents in Keighley Central, asking them to let me know their concerns and experiences.

The response to this has been fantastic, with a large number of surveys returned.

Following the results of this survey I am now putting together a robust campaign to tackle the drugs issues in the area and will continue to update you on progress of this.  I am currently working with the Police and Stakeholders to do this.
