Anti-Social Behaviour Survey & Meetings
Some of you have completed an online survey I advertised about Anti-Social Behaviour which started with this question.
Q1 Is anti-social behaviour locally a problem for you or your family?
129 of you said it had a major impact on you or your family
231 of you said it had some impact
16 said it had no impact
148 of you said you would be willing to attend ward panels to help find solutions out of the 380 people who completed the survey (it is still open in this link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ASBCWsurvey
But 118 said abourt reporting ASB 'No, I did not think it was worth it or would take too long' and 34 said 'No, I did not know how to' which we need to solve.
A summary of the results are in this attached PDF or you can access the results online here https://www.surveymonkey.com/results/SM-7TMDFQHW8/
The next step is to start discussing setting up a new ward panel for the Isle of Dogs wards (Canary Wharf, Island Gardens and Blackwall & Cubitt Town). Lansbury, Poplar and Limehouse already have them but the three ward panels on the island have largely disappeared and the Police now prefer one island wide ward panel.
In the new year I will organise some public meetings to discuss setting one up but if you want to have a chat about this issue I will be at the Canary Wharf Ideas store Lab 1 behind Waitrose on:
Sat 9th December 3pm to 5pm
Wed 20th December 4pm to 7pm
as I need help to set one up or we can meet on a 1 to 1 basis if you want.
We need residents to lead the ward panels as happens in other wards, they then work with the Council, Police and other stakeholders like Canary Wharf Group on helping to decide how to allocate police priorities, raising issues and concerns and acting as a clearing house for information. One reason why Limehouse got a Public Space Protection Order for Ropemakers and surrounding areas is because they are more organised then the island.
I should have done this sooner but I was ironically delayed by the sudden spike of street robberies in Limehouse (16 in three weeks) and the police operation Naga in response.
