Safer Monmouthshire Group

The Monmouthshire Community Safety Partnership (CSP) was dissolved in April 2012 following the Welsh Government paper ‘Shared Purpose, Shared Delivery’. The statutory requirements were transferred to the Monmouthshire Local Service Board (LSB), which in 2016 became the Public Service Board (PSB).  The SMG formally undertakes the PSB statutory responsibility in-line with the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, (Part 1: S6), which includes strategies to reduce crime and disorder, strategies for combating the misuse of drugs and alcohol and other substances, and strategies for the reduction of re-offending.

The refreshed PSB brings together the top executives of key organisations in Monmouthshire to discuss the partnership agenda. Chaired by the Chief Executive of Monmouthshire County Council and attended by the Leader of the Council. Key partners comprise of Gwent Police, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, Gwent Association of Voluntary Organisations, Fire & Rescue, Public Health Wales and National Resources Wales.

The Single Integrated Plan (SIP) 2013/2017 has been created on behalf of the PSB, which incorporates Community Safety. The SIP has three main theme areas: Nobody is Left Behind; People are Confident, Capable and Involved; Our County Thrives.

The following are the aims which fall within the remit of the SMG in relation to community safety.

  1. People’s lives are not affected by alcohol and drug misuse.
  2. Families are supported.
  3. People feel safe.

The PSB and Safer Monmouthshire Group’s priorities are delivered by the four local Community Safety Action Teams (CSAT’s), which are:

  • Bryn Y Cwm CSAT:
  • Central Monmouthshire CSAT:
  • Lower Wye CSAT:
  • Severnside CSAT:

These are multi-agency groups organised on an area basis and deal with local problems.

Examples of recent projects supported by the CSAT’s are:

  • In Caldicot a Community Restorative Programme was run to tackle anti-social behaviour by young people on the town.
  • Improving personal safety by sourcing and promoting a Family Safety Pack.
  • Deploying mobile CCTV cameras in Hotspot ASB areas.
  • Provided financial support and facilitated youth anti-graffiti projects in Monmouth and Chepstow.
  • Provided shed alarms to help combat rural crimes and provide reassurance.
  • Work with Youth Service to support reduction of problems associated with Halloween and Bonfire night, Operation Bang, each year.
  • Use of Designated Public Place Order to control anti-social behaviour connected to alcohol consumption in Monmouth.

Reporting an issue for your local CSAT can be made via the Community Hubs, details above, or via the Anti-social Behaviour Coordinator: Andrew Mason 01633 644210
