The team also took part in a multi-agency action week held on the Barrack Estate in September.
The five-day event focused on several issues including youth, housing, environmental crime and vandalism.
Feedback from residents was positive and as a result partner agencies will now work together to improve youth services.
Residents set a further three priorities which the team will focus on over the next two months.
�Engagement and reassurance with elderly and vulnerable people over the winter months
�Anti-social behaviour on Middlegate Road
�Supporting community cohesion by encouraging the reporting of hate crime
The team's next priority setting meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 26.
