Residents meeting

Yesterday’s residents meeting was very well attended and I would like to thank all those who contributed to the discussion. Councillor Sirajul Islam also came and enriched the meeting, which was very well led by our chair Cathrine Powell.

People are invited to participate in groups around

  • cycle storage
  • gardening

There is a particular green conscience with residents suggesting a green belt with fruit trees and shrubs. Any bare spots on the estate can be planted up, please get in touch.

There are still problems remaining from the botched Mayor Works program, please contact our Residents Association with your comments about this.

Recycling rates should be increased and more efforts need to be made to put the correct items into the recycling bins.

Support was pledged to keep Raine’s Foundation school open.

Please also see our ASB page for advice on how to report problems.

Please go to our contact page to get in touch if interested. You may also request addition to the Residents Association mailing list.

 

 

Local ASB problem

Have just been made aware that some youth set fire to a bin near Mark House. The fire brigade came very quickly to put the fire out.

It would help if as many residents as possible could make formal complaints about this problem because resources to deal with ASB are allocated according to the amount of complaints received.

On our sites ASB page there is a list of contacts.

Our local police team for Bethnal Green can be reported to using this web page on the Met Police website. You will get a reference number and can download or print the report.

Alternative you may contact 101 or your local SNT team when you see them.

Always dial 999 if a problem is an ongoing emergency.

Neighbourhood Watch news

Parkview Neighbourhood Watch was created in July 2007 and since then the instances of Anti-social behaviour and crime have fallen on the estate.

We provide support to vulnerable residents if required and now can offer a communications network via a What’sApp group.

If you want to join our What’sApp group please register on our online form and you will be visited by Johanna who will drop you a registration from, which will also include membership in the watch scheme.

Johanna Kaschke Neighbourhood watch

Johanna the Parkview Neighbourhood Watch coordinator

Once you complete the online form, Joanna will visit  for an introduction meeting.

Holding regular meetings in a fixed location has proven unpracticable as many of our residents work shifts, have child-care committment or other personal/work reasons why they could not attend at certain dates or times.

Of course the Neighbourhood Watch coordinator Johanna is a member of the Safer Neighbourhood Ward Panel, which meets quarterly to discuss policing needs for our area.

Please always report instances of Anti-social behaviour or suspicious activity directly to the Metropolitan Police website where you will be given a CAD reference number. If you, additionally want to submit pictorial evidence to support your case, please then email this evidence to your Safer Neighbourhood Officers, stating that CAD reference number.

I would gladly support you if you require assistance on how to use the system. Completing the form below does not enrol you into Neighbourhood Watch as a member. It is merely for the purpose of explaining the new reporting procedures.

If there is a requirement to hold a public meeting on this issue please indicate your interest here:

Antisocial behaviour can have a lasting impact on neighbourhoods and communities as it often leads to an increase in crime, particularly violence and criminal damage. If you’ve witnessed antisocial behaviour of any kind, find out how to report it below using our quick and simple online tool.

Drug and crime related ASB meeting

The date when the London Borough of Hackney and Tower Hamlets formally joined in a common policing administration, incidentally also was a date of a multi-SNT panel meeting at the Glasshouse. The three wards of Bethnal Green, St. Peters and Weavers were represented. A further meeting is planned in 3 months time.

The meeting was very well attended and the hall was filled to the brim. In attendance were non other than Mayor of Tower Hamlets John Biggs and our local councillor and Deputy Mayor Sirajul Islam, Cllr Eve McQuillan, Cllr. John Pierce, Cllr. Asma Islam with support from London Assembly member Unmesh Desai. Further representatives of our local SNT team were present as well as officers from local housing providers.

The discussion ranged around budget pressures for the police, Anti-social behaviour and what can be done about it.

The minutes of the meeting were sent to the representatives of our Residents Association if anyone has an interest in seeing them.

There is a strong desire to rid the borough of drug dealing and related crimes, which is often expressed in gang related activity, also rough sleeping is attributed to drug related behaviour.

The main emphasis conveyed to the general public was collect evidence, forward it to Tower Hamlets Homes ASB team, your local SNT team or 101. Of course when a crime is in process always call 999.

So far, through “Operation Continuum” which was carried out in waves of house searches throughout the borough, 160 people have been arrested and around 60 have been given jail sentences.
