After the Place Check, a meeting is held in which short term objectives are set which residents themselves can achieve, and everyone is given a particular job. This may involve starting a neighbourhood watch or a scheme to improve front gardens or tackle litter. It is also hoped that the group will stay together in the longer term to pressure the local authority to improve street furniture or road safety, for example.
