“We know that crime, antisocial behaviour and off-road bikes have become a big problem in Arbourthorne,” Coun Scott said.

Coun Scott said the meeting was a result of increased reports of off-road bikers during the councillors’ surgeries in the suburb.

"We need to hear from people and collate these concerns, but most importantly, take action.

"It's about working together as a community, and seeing how we can help people come together in a better way."
