Is this right policy? Your say.

WHY would any logically reasoning person when choosing or enforcing assistance or rehabilitation to drug or alcoholdriven offenders decide to do so in houses located smack bang in the middle of a town centre with total access to all the elements that I assume they are trying to help them off?.

Talk about temptation on the doorstep.

Judging by your scales of justice column recently it appears it may be more prudent and cost effective to alleygate each end of Hartington Road in the town for what good these hostels appear to be achieving.

Filling private landlords' pockets and occupying empty properties is not the object of the exercise and spending money on renovating the town centre seems a bit futile when there's a cottage industry around the corner.

Bit of joined up thinking needs applying.

Or am I missing something maybe, like a map? M EGAN, Stockton
