Community Wardens

The Community Wardens, formerly Street Wardens, have been providing regular high visibility patrols throughout the borough of Tamworth since 2002. The role has adapted over the years to provide the best possible service to the residents, visitors and community as a whole.
 
As part of the Neighbourhoods’ Team, the wardens work closely with the Tenancy Sustainment Officers and Community Safety Partnership along with various partners from the Police, Fire Service, Social Housing Landlords, other internal departments within Tamworth Borough Council and many more.
 
Wardens are responsible for dealing with Environmental Anti-Social Behaviour issues around their assigned patches, as well as being the eyes and ears of the community to collect evidence of other Anti-Social Behaviour matters.
 
The wardens also deal with and provide education and enforcement of Environmental Antisocial Behaviour matters such as;
  • Littering
  • Fly-tipping
  • Incorrect Domestic Waste Disposal
  • Dog Fouling and Dog Control Orders
  • Abandoned and Nuisance Vehicles (not parking related)
They also monitor and collect evidence relating to cases of;
  • Noise Nuisance
  • Ball Game Issues
  • Intimidation and Harassment
  • Breaches of Tenancy Agreements
Whilst ‘out and about’ the wardens also highlight and report issues such as damaged roads, footpaths and street furniture, damaged or faulty lighting, graffiti, overflowing litter and dog waste bins, dangerous trees, and many other things to keep Tamworth a clean and pleasant place to live, work and visit.
