The West End and Sandylands area of Morecambe have been exploited by slum lords . Consequently this has brought the area down and there is a huge problem with drug dealing down the back alleys. 

With over 100 reported cases a month of anti social behaviour , theft , violence and sexual offences I feel some radical changes need to happen.

I would like to see all the back alleys securely gated. Only the people who own their house have a key to the gate and the council have a master key to access the back alleys on bin days. 

I would also like to see selective licencing brought in to the area so the landlords have to take responsibility for the tenants. 

The Landlords need to become accountable for their tenants and we need to take a proactive stance on stopping the drug dealing down the back alleys. 

This is an area of such amazing potential. Especially with the Eden Project coming to Morecambe we have to take the proactive view to making Morecambe the best it can be. Also I feel that the upstanding members of the community have fallen victim to the slum lords , who have done their best to drive the area down in pursuit of personal wealth. Not only do people feel unsafe but as a result of the crime it has devalued the area.

With the Eden project coming to Morecambe and the amount of tourism this will bring I feel this would be an ideal time to start with cleaning up the West End and Sandylands. 

Everyone has a a right to feel safe and secure in their own home and a change needs to happen.
