Councillor Johnston said there has been an ongoing problem in the area and addedL “There have been a number of complaints to myself regarding youths gathering to the rear of the shop and houses on Glebetown Drive.
“These young people are taking part in underage drinking, setting fire to fences, an causing loud noise and littering.
“The residents in the area are at their wits end and quite simply want this to end. I have contacted Down District Council to ensure that the area is cleaned up and I will be raising the matter with the local Down Policing and Community Safety Partnership.
“It is important that people feel safe in their own homes and are given the peace and quiet they deserve in a residential area. I want to also call on parents to be vigilant about where their children are at all times, and to ensure that they are not engaging in anti-social behaviour.”]]>
