Oppose the use of 27 Nelson Road PO21 2RY as an HMO

This petition had 54 supporters


If the yet another HMO is permitted to be established within Marine Ward the area surrounding 27 Nelson Road is likely to experience:

Extreme likelihood of anti-social behaviour, noise, litter and disturbance from the use.

Extreme likelihood of public drinking with its public health & social implications.

Extreme likelihood of sex workers visiting or operating from the dwelling.

Extreme likelihood of drug use with its public health & social implications.

Extreme likelihood of drug dealing with its public health & social implications.

Extreme likelihood of multiple police attendances.

No parking provision within the scheme.

12 units representing overdevelopment for the space which the site occupies.

This is supported by the crime statistics at the new owners other sites:

There have been 12 incidences of crime as reported on the police.uk website ranging from anti-social behaviour, theft, criminal damage, public order, burglary and violence and sex crime in the last 12 months at the post code of their Hunston Road site.

The charity do have a drop in site in Chichester at the Old Glass House St Cyriacs PO19 1AJ but this closes at 17.00 so is not overnight accommodation. The police.uk website suggests 27 crimes in St Cyriacs in the last 12 months.

The charity also have a recovery service in Bognor Regis at 21-23 Canada Grove PO21 1DW. The police.uk website suggests 30 crimes at Canada Grove in the last 12 months.

The charity also have a Hostel & Hub at Glenlogie House, Clarence Road Bognor Regis PO21 1JT. The police.uk website suggests 42 crimes in the last 12 months.

111 crimes in the last 12 months that are potentially attributable to the presence to the proposers sites.

By contrast there were just 2 reported crimes in Nelson Road during the last 12 months according to the police.uk website, despite the already high density of development and population referred to earlier which supports what a quiet law abiding area Nelson Road currently is.
