Residents in Bradford residents hit by crime such as burglaries are set get help through £550,000 in funding as part of a national crime prevention scheme.
The funding, release by the Home Office, will go toward improving the security of local homes in the Bradford estate of Fagley.
The money will be put toward a variety of measures, including the fitting of new street lighting and fencing.
The development follows a successful joint bid to the government’s Safer Streets Fund, involving West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner’s Office, West Yorkshire Police, Bradford Community Safety Partnership, and Incommunities.
Detail plans of the measures for the area will shortly be drawn working with residents.
Anna Fryer, Incommunities’ director of Neighbourhoods, said: “We are determined to work with local partners and Fagley residents to improve security and drive down crime and anti-social behaviour for the benefit of everyone.
“This funding will help make this happen.”
Last month, Westcliff estate in Scunthorpe also received funding to improve the safety and security in the area.
The Home Office granted £550,000 from its Safer Streets Fund, following a bid from Ongo and The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside (OPCC).
