Police, York Housing Association and residents of Markham Crescent will be working together to try and combat anti-social problems in the Clarence Street, Union Terrace, Haxby Road and Walmgate Area.

The problems are often drink and drug related and following the deaths of two men less than a week apart last autumn at a properly in Markham Road, a follow up meeting was planned said Guildhall Ward Councillor, Fiona Fitzpatrick.

Councillor Fitzpatrick said she also intended to work very closely with York’s Police Commander, Superintendent Mark Khan, to see how they could police the area.
