Local Government in Northern Ireland is undergoing major restructuring through the Review of Public Administration. Of the eleven Councils to be formed as a result of this Review, the Councils of Carrickfergus, Larne, and Ballymena are to come together to form the new Mid and East Antrim Council area by April 2015.
PCSP’s are statutory bodies established under the Justice Act (NI) 2011. Under the Act, Councils are obliged to establish a PCSP structure in their locality.
The three predecessor PCSPs have in place individual strategic action plans which will come to an end in March 2015. They wish to appoint a service provider with appropriate expertise to develop and provide a Policing and Community Safety strategy (2015-18) and action plan for the first year (2015/16) of the new Mid and East Antrim PCSP.
