ANTISOCIAL behaviour in Hoyland is on the agenda of Barnsley East MP Stephanie Peacock.

Over recent weeks, the MP said she’s held meetings with residents and neighbourhood police on the issue.

Stephanie also met with South Yorkshire Police Chief Superintendent James Abdy and pressed the issue.

“I know the huge impact that this is having on people and real anxiety that it is causing for local residents,” she said.

“Following the meetings I have been in touch the police, Berneslai Homes and Barnsley Council to discuss action that can be taken and I would encourage residents to keep reporting incidents that take place.

“I was also pleased to meet with the new Chief Superintendent of South Yorkshire Police, James Abdy. 

“We discussed a wide range of issues from across Barnsley, including police numbers and resourcing, to local issues like speeding and anti-social behaviour.   

“We will be working closely and I will remain in regular contact with him and his teams to raise people’s concerns to try to ensure they get the attention they need.”
