Traders have been told the increasing number of people sleeping rough in Cleethorpes' main shopping area will be dealt with.
Shop owners on St Peter's Avenue have raised concerns about the number of people who are now sleeping out overnight.
Humberside Police say they are working with North East Lincolnshire Council to tackle the issue.
Ch Supt Christine Wilson said the local policing team would be looking at a working group involving residents and shopkeepers.
It's really important to understand if we are making a difference or not. We also need to look at how we commission more beds for homeless sleepers and how we get them into wider service treatment."
