Woking is a large town in northwest Surrey, England. It is at the south-western edge of the Greater London urban area and is a part of the London commuter belt, with frequent trains and a journey time of approximately 24 minutes to Waterloo station.
Woking borough has a population of over 101,000, the average age is 39 and is a relatively prosperous borough, however small pockets of deprivation exist.
In recent years there has been significant investment into the borough, improving the infra-structure and significant investment (£460 million) into the town centre development. There is large retail, leisure and restaurant space with 2 theatres, 6 cinema screens and two main shopping centres known as Wolsey Place and the Peacocks shopping centre.
The Woking Neighbourhood Team have taken a problem solving approach to anti social behaviour. We have worked with partner agencies and will continue to do so to engage with the young people in the community and will continue to try and prevent ASB in the area.
