Newsletter No 8 - December 2017 
from Councillor Andrew Wood, Canary Wharf ward 

Dear all,

See below for details about the meeting tomorrow Saturday from 3pm to 5pm to discuss ASB and security issues at the Canary Wharf Ideas Store Lab 1.

Many of you will have received the Council leaflet about a consultation to add around 82 new speed bumps and tables on roads across the Isle of Dogs as well as making Strafford Street one way. The online version is now here:

a PDF copy of the leaflet is here 

It was not clear from the leaflet but there is also a map on the online version where you can drop a pin  onto a map requesting a range of public improvements (see list below). To enter your own preferences. Find the map as in the first picture. To the left of the map click on the blue 'Submit Entry' sign under reports. If you click on Legend you can see the options. Provide your name and address, select whether you want to add a bin, streetlight or improve the public realm etc. Then select the place where you want to drop the pin

You can also comment on other poeples comments I believe but all on an anonymous basis

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

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

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.
