AN ADDITIONAL £320,000 will be allocated by Fife Council to tackle anti-social behaviour in the Kingdom, with a range of measures already being set out.

Quicker response times, improved evidence-gathering and working directly with communities are among proposals made by Fife Council’s housing services in order to tackle some of the anti-social behaviour reported throughout the Kingdom already.

In addition to the above potential measures, recommendations have been made to invest the six-figure sum to recruit additional staff to support those affected by anti-social behaviour.

If the cash injection is approved, it is anticipated that these changes could be implemented by the summer by council officers.

Spekaing about the plans, councillor Judy Hamilton said: “Anti-social behaviour in any form will not be tolerated and this proposed investment will support earlier intervention to prevent matters from escalating.”
