Newry & Mourne Sinn Féin Councillor Roisin Mulgrew has described the latest public meeting in Bessbrook which discussed the escalation of serious anti social and criminal activity in the village, as positive and encouraging. The local Councillor explained, “In response to growing concerns about the rise of serious anti social and criminal activity from many Bessbrook residents and businesses I invited the Housing Executive, The PSNI, CRJ, PCSP, Clanmil Housing Association and fellow Councillors to attend a Public Meeting to discuss in an open and frank manner, the genuine concerns raised. “Conversations took place about issues such as the responsibility of private landlords to not only their prospective tenant but also to the community, responses to the rise of anti social behaviour and tackling serious criminal activity in the area. “As a result of an extremely positive and productive meeting a committee of representatives from all of the housing developments throughout the village was selected to come together to work with the statutory bodies and to continue to highlight the concerns of locals.” She added, “Bessbrook is a very beautiful and historic village and the community is determined to work together to ensure that it is a secure and safe environment to be enjoyed by all sections of the population. A meeting of the new committee will take place at the start of December.”
