Anti-Social Behaviour

Helping Harrogate become a safer place through partnership work.

Following numerous complaints and reports about aggressive beggars and rough sleepers in the town, in 2021 Harrogate BID helped form an anti-social behaviour task force, made up of representatives from town centre businesses, North Yorkshire Police, Harrogate Homeless Project and Harrogate Borough Council. The group meet monthly and reports back on ongoing efforts in supporting genuinely homeless people and deterring ‘professional’ street beggars.
