In Chorlton, in 2022, we're committed to doing these things:
Antisocial behaviour – March Update
Youth Provision: We are continuing to look at options around how we can steer the perpetrators of the current ASB problems towards other less disruptive activities. However, we are also aware that the local community centre already offers a broad range of options which this group are choosing not to engage with. We are working with the families involved to try and identify suitable opportunities. Where possible, we will include engagement in these activities as a condition within the ABCs (Acceptable Behaviour Contracts) that we agree with the families involved. Sadly, it is the case that some members of this gang have moved passed a point where Southway are realistically able to provide any meaningful support. In these cases we will continue to work closely with the police, and intend to pursue the legal routes available to us around tenancy enforcement.
Environmental Target Hardening around Neville Drive: We are working with the Neighbourhoods Team and the Environmental & Sustainability Management Officer to look at Crime Prevention through Environmental design in the area.
CCTV camera on Newbrook Avenue: There have been further technical issues in relation to this camera, we can now confirm that the issues have been resolved and the camera is now back online.
Door Cameras: The Doorbell cameras have been gifted to certain residents that have been regular victims of ASB. The complaints have significantly reduced in this area.
Fly tipping: The Neighbourhoods Team and MCC are working in partnership to identify and investigate those responsible, following information from local residents that have witnessed fly tipping incidents, this work is on-going.
Incidents: Southway has seen a significant reduction in the amount of complaints received. Southway have liaised with GMP to check their systems to see if the data is the same.
Parenting Support/Tenancy Enforcement/Youth Engagement: Southway has previously taken Tenancy Enforcement action against the parents of some of the young persons identified. A number of the young persons have also signed up to Acceptable Behaviour Contracts and agreed to engage with a Restorative Justice group (Remedi). Their key aim is to reduce the criminalisation of children and young people who are on the periphery of the criminal justice system. This will be achieved through a restorative approach – getting to the underlying issues – and tailoring their work around the needs of the young people. In addition to this we are offering Parenting Support.

Activities at the Sheltered Housing Schemes
The Age Friendly Delivery Team manage our Sheltered Housing Schemes and bungalow sites in Chorlton. The Officers carry out health and wellbeing visits to our residents living in these properties. In our Sheltered Housing Schemes residents have access to communal facilities, a lounge, laundry and gardens and the properties benefit from a community alarm which is monitored 24/7 365 by an offsite company who can provide reassurance and contact services in the event of a health emergency.
The following activities take place weekly at Holland Court:
- Monday – arm chair exercise with Charlotte 10.30 to 11.30am
- Tuesday – Crafts with Glenys 1.00 to 3.00pm
- Wednesday – Alternative weeks coffee morning / Yoga with Spiros
- Thursday – Hair dressing 11.30 to 3.00pm with Julie
- Friday – 1.00 to 3.00pm Crocheting with Glenys
In addition, there are periodic Time Bank Events held at Holland Court which will be advertised locally.
Chorlton Peer Support Network
The aim is to reduce loneliness and isolation and build a sense of neighbourliness and community by developing a network of trained older people acting as a Peer Support Network, who develop activities that create connections and improve wellbeing. We are looking for volunteers from Chorlton become involved in the project.
