How safe do you feel in Thanet? That's the question being asked in the new Local People, Local Places survey from the Thanet Community Safety Partnership.

The new survey is part of an information pack that has details about crime in different parts of Thanet, highlighting how much crime has reduced in recent months and including details of the teams in each area, who are working to make Thanet a safer place to live, work and visit.

The survey aims to find out from residents in every part of Thanet how safe they feel in their local area, what they feel would help to reduce crime in their area and how much of a problem certain issues are in their areas.

The leaflets, posters and business cards cover central Margate, Cliftonville, Dane Valley, Newington, central Ramsgate, Westgate and will be extending to cover other parts of Thanet shortly, but views are wanted from people in all areas of the district.

Community Safety Manager, Mark Richardson, said: "Anyone who has any opinion on what's happening in their area in terms of crime or anti-social behaviour should take the time to fill this survey out. If we're honest, that's probably nearly every person in Thanet, as we know it's an issue that matters to local people and that's why we're asking for your views. We aim to tackle the problems that local people have identified and the easiest way of letting us know that is by filling in this survey. We look forward to seeing as many completed surveys as possible over the next few weeks."

Completed surveys should be returned to Communications, FREEPOST SEA8273, Thanet District Council, Margate, CT9 1XZ. The survey is available online at the council's website at www.thanet.gov.uk and at Thanet's Gateway Plus, all council offices and libraries. The consultation runs until Friday 18 December. The feedback will be used to help shape the Thanet Community Safety Partnership action plan for 2010/11.
