PCC DN - Safer Streets funding - Commonplace – Safer Spaces Greater Manchester

Decision Maker: Director for Police, Crime, Criminal Justice and Fire

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Commonplace Safer Spaces Hub helps the GMCA, and Local Authority Partners, to know what people think about crime and perceptions of safety in a specific location.

It also allows for a virtual conversation to take place between residents and the local Community Safety Partnership in regards to what residents would you like public services to focus on and what more we could do to keep communities and neighbourhoods safe.

Use of this Hub builds on the quarterly GM Police and Crime survey, allowing us to understand better where there are areas of concern in respect of public safety. It also will support the work of the GMCA and partners outlined in the Gender Based Violence strategy, as we build our understand of where acts of anti-social behaviour, intimidation, misogyny and harassment take place and the severity of these incidents.


The Deputy Mayor will directly fund the purchase of a GM Safer Spaces Licence for the Commonplace Safer Spaces Hub, including the Community heatmap, for a 12 month period at a cost of £7,500
