No Cold Calling Zones

No Cold Calling Zones help combat the problem of doorstep crime.

They can deter unscrupulous cold callers from approaching people living in the zones, but more importantly, they can give people the confidence to say “No”. Whilst the zones do not ban cold callers or create exclusion zones, they can be useful in dealing with any unwelcome cold callers.
