Residents of an Aberdeen community have hit out at issues with drugs and anti-social behaviour.
People living around the Rosehill Drive area of Aberdeen called a meeting with city council housing officers after complaining of a rise in problems.
Police and council chiefs say they are aware of the concerns and are taking steps to address them.
Speaking at the meeting, one resident, who did not want to be named, said: “For the past few years we’ve had junkies, homeless, alcoholics and any other undesirable you could think of.
“This was a beautiful area – no one wants to come and live up here now. We’re needing our streets cleaned up, we’re needing the flats cleaned up. Enough is enough.”
Another resident said: “The police are never away from the flats.”
A further meeting has now been called with the housing officer alongside the anti-social behaviour team to discuss the concerns.
Councillor Lesley Dunbar, who represents the area, said: “I’ve been aware of anti-social behaviour and drug use issues in the community for some time.
“It’s positive that residents have now come together with council housing officers to listen to residents and find ways how we can all work together to resolve this.
“It is best tackled by reporting it to the council’s anti-social behaviour investigation team. I’d encourage any resident, wherever they live, to report it.”
An Aberdeen City Council spokeswoman said: “One of our housing officers, who has previously met with the residents, is organising a meeting with the anti-social behaviour team and the police to try to address these concerns.”
Mastrick inspector Jon Millar added: “We are aware of community concerns in the Rosehill Drive area.
“Officers have been carrying out preventative patrols regularly as a result. I would encourage residents to call 101 if they see or hear any anti-social behaviour or if they have any information about drug misuse at the time that they notice it.”
