Barton House evacuation: information for residents.

What the Safer Streets Fund was and how Hartcliffe and Southville/Bedminster benefited.

This project ended in September 2023.

The Safer Streets programme aimed to reduce anti-social behaviour (ASB) and crime around:

  • Millmead, Hayley and Middleford House in Hartcliffe
  • Dame Emily Park in Southville/Bedminster

We were given £748,498 for the programme as part of the government's Safer Streets Fund.

Prevent ASB and crime

To help create a safer and cleaner environment by the end of September 2023 the programme included:

  • more street lighting
  • more street CCTV monitoring   
  • more youth work and activities
  • opportunities for residents to get involved with projects to help keep the community safe


The Safer Streets programme is a partnership between:

  • Bristol City Council
  • Avon and Somerset Police
  • Police Crime Commissioners Office
  • Home Office
