Local Community Meetings (Formerly LCAP)

Anti Social Behaviour, Crime, Reduce Crime, Safer Neighbourhoods

Local Community Meetings (LCM) are multi agency problem solving groups, working alongside the local community to address crime, anti-social behaviour and quality of life issues.

There are a number of members including:

  • Colchester Borough Council*
  • Colchester Parish Councils
  • Essex County Council
  • Local community groups
  • Councillors
  • Community leaders
  • Neighbourhood Watch
  • Resident’s Associations

Each LCM serves to identify and achieve short, medium and sustainable long term solutions to local community needs.  LCM’s are action plan led, which are reviewed and updated at every meeting.
