Dudden Hill Ward Panel Meeting Tonight at 7PM at the College of North West London

To residents who regularly read this blog, there is a Ward Panel Meeting tonight at the College of North West London (Dudden Hill Lane campus).

The meeting is hosted by the Dudden Hill Safer Neighbourhood Team and we discuss community safety issues here.

The last Panel meeting led to the following local priorities being take up by the local Police – LINK

Come along to have your say and to take part. All residents are welcome.

Dudden Hill Safer Neighbourhood Team down to three

Police numbers in Dudden Hill are simply too low. My ward currently has only one Sergeant, one PC and one PCSO as part of the dedicated Ward Safer Neighbourhood Team at the moment.

Last night, I was on a joint collaborative ward walkabout with Welsh Harp Ward to investigate cross-ward issues in the Neasden area. Residents are also welcome to join me this Sunday with the Dudden Hill Safer Neighbourhood Team for a walkabout in the Neasden Shopping Centre area at 9.30am. The issues that we are trying to solve simply need more resources.

There are currently three different area with differing problems that we are trying to deal with at the moment. In Neasden, we have the street drinking and anti-social behaviour, in the Dollis Hill part of the Ward, I was informed last night that burglary has spiked up again and the Church Road area has one of the largest crime rates in Brent at the sub-ward level.

Given the lack of resources being afforded to our local police, I will ensure that ward working money is given to crime initiatives as I have done in previous years. The doubling of Ward Working funding will go a long way to help me, my remaining co-Councillor and the Dudden Hill Safer Neighbourhood Team address specific crime and anti-social behavioural issues in Dudden Hill.

Winter Snow and Ice Advice

Brent Council has published a Winter Snow and Advice guide which you can all read and view here: LINK

I will be going around Neasden with Sergeant Matt Howard from the Dudden Hil Safer Neighbourhood Team from 2pm onwards to patrol the area. This was an already scheduled walkabout to identify issues before the UK snow and we will continue with our work despite the weather.

Neasden street drinking

Street drinking is a huge issue in the Neasden area. The amount of cans left behind by drinkers and the anti-social behaviour that residents and businesses suffer from drunk people is horrific.

At the last Dudden Hill Ward Panel meeting, I supported the resident’s and businesses’ plea to have it as a priority issue for the Safer Neighbourhood Team to tackle.

Today I will be going around Neasden with the Neasden Action Group to further investigate the issue and talk to residents about what they can practically do when they see someone drinking openly around their area.

Anyone is more than welcome to join us. We will be starting off where Cairnfield Avenue meets with Chartley Avenue at 1PM.

Ward Working funds Safer Neighbourhood Team to purchase equipment

Safer Neighbourhood Teams provide an essential role in following up and reassuring victims of crime at what could be a traumatic time for people. Unfortunately, they are not always well resourced, especially under this Tory Mayor of London. Through Ward Working, I have provided £1,224 worth of funding to the Dudden Hill Safer Neighbourhood Team to purchase crime prevention and reassurance equipment so that they have the tools to carry out doing the splendid job they do effectively.

In all our Council indicators, crime is the most important issue to people in Brent and it is right that the Council works with the Police to make Brent a safer place for all.
