temporary road closures

This was posted on Facebook today Friday, 27/8/21 (afternoon) with the following captions:

There will be temporary road closures in Tower Hamlets to allow for the safe movement of visitors from All Points East festival. Closures are permitted from 9pm to midnight from Friday 27 August to Monday 30 August.

• Grove Road between Roman Road and Lauriston Road • Old Ford Rd between St Stephen’s Rd and Bonner Street • Aberavon Rd, Rhondda Grove & Maplin Street will be closed at their junctions with Mile End Rd

Have contacted estate services about access to estate via Old Ford Road.

Anybody with problems to do with ASB or crime over the weekend must dial 999 in case of urgent emergencies.

Other problems can be reported directly to the Met Police Service Contact Centre via Twitter, who will issue reference and instruct local police to act. If you want to phone ring 101 instead.

Anonymous reports can be made directly to THNWA using the link on the side of blog.

Due to the setting of the Garda gate, it is not possible to leave the St. James’s Avenue gate open during the weekend. I would instruct any delivery companies about this. Sorry about this, only just been confirmed to me.

However, I have contacted the organisers of the festival and asked whether deliveries of large items for Mark House and Sydney House would be allowed through via Old Ford Road.

Sign in Sewardstone Road

If people suffer financial loss through the closure because delivery access is refused people should make claims for the loss to Tower Hamlets Council.

Apparently this road closure has not appeared on the LYN App under road closures but the sign put up by Allpointseast explains in detail that the road closures take place in the evenings only. Whilst the post on Facebook from Tower Hamlets Council gave the impression the closure lasted for days, hence my misinterpreting the situation.

But, I think such closures should be announced on council notices as well and residents should be informed about this because not even our estates officer knew about this.

Some companies deliver late at night and that can disrupt lives. I would have preferred it if all residents had been informed through their letter box, as we have quite a few residents who do not use email or Internet regularly.

urgent appeal

It has come to our attention that a resident around the Glasshouse area (exact details cannot be published at this time) is regularly

  • harassing community volunteers
  • neighbours
  • committing hate crime
  • is homophobic

We urge all affected to contact us immediately.

It has a very depressing effect on the community is one individual can intimidate neighbours and volunteers.

Please do contact us with any details of problems suffered through this.

If you have pictorial evidence you can submit anonymously through this link. Please do not share anything on social media at this time. Contact us via our contact page to discuss this with us directly.

In case of being insulted or attacked, please call 999. Keep records of all incidences of verbal or other insults directed at you.

Do not suffer in silence, not saying anything will not improve the situation. This matter has been reported to police and to Tower Hamlets Homes.

Any person who has suffered any type of racial assault can be referred to the Council’s Hate crime unit for counselling with consent. Please contact us.

Monthly drop-ins

We now run monthly drop-ins.

broken walls

broken wall stones have been left laying around in front of Cleland and Goodrich House and along Sewardstone Road.

I have taken pictures and contact councillors, THH, SNT and Parkview RA about this.

No lose stones should be left lying around, this is a H&S risk and the bricks can be used for criminal acts.

If anybody has any further comments about this problem or has had incidents adversely affecting them please contact Parkview Neighbourhood Watch using the contact form on this site.

I shall submit a formal complaint to THH if this has not been rectified by Tuesday 29. June

Noise from basketball and play area

It was brought to my attention that people playing basketball and ball in the football pitch near Rosebery House do so till after 11pm and that residents living nearby cannot sleep undisturbed because of the noise.

The play area falls within the by-laws as seen here:

because this play activity takes place with the consent of the Council, because the Residents Association put that basket ball hoop there with their consent, the situation becomes complicated.

Obviously the Parkview Neighbourhood Watch does not condone noises later than 8pm in the play area.

Any resident from Parkview having problems with noise from the football area at Rosebery House, please contact us, using our contact form.

We’ll be speaking to Residents’ Association, THH, Parkguard and SNT to get patrols in the area at night time.

There is a public meeting at the Glasshouse on 17. July 2021 at 5PM, which will be held by Parkview Neighbourhood Watch and the Tower Hamlets Neighbourhood Watch Association. Two Police Constables and two PCSO officers will be there to discuss any problems you may have.
