All Residents have a right to be able to live in peace without the constant distressing problem of kerb crawlers and street prostitutes outside their front door. Unfortunately, for many law abiding residents in Southall Green this is just not possible. There has been an increase in street prostitution and kerb crawling over recent months between the hours of around 22:30 and 04:00. It's a visible problem in an area with many young families.
Please help our community by joining me in requesting that Ealing Council fast tracks the implementation of a Dispersal order for the area. A Dispersal order provides the Police with additional powers to tackle anti-social behaviour in areas where members of the pubic are distressed or alarmed at the persistent level of anti-social issues in their area.
Street Prostitution has been growing over recent months and has now reached an acute level with as many as 7 to 8 Prostitutes operating in the area. They attract an influx of traffic as their male clients drive into the area in the hope of soliciting the women. An estimated figure we have is anything between 7 to 10 male clients successfully picking up a prostitute each hour. This is no longer something that happens rarely. It happens each and every night of the week and generating many thousands of pounds for the criminal gangs behind the prostitution operation.
It is time that we expressed our disgust and anger at the slow pace of change and lack of action taken by our elected local councilors.
Please help support this petition - it is vital that we work as a community and make our feelings known.I am confident that with the support of residents we can persuade the Council to approve the Police's request for a Dispersal order. A Disperal order has been shown to reduce the levels of anti-social behaviour. To ensure that the order is progressed, it is vital that the community speaks out in favour of action against prostitution and kerb crawlers. As residents we cannot accept this on our doorstep.
Thank you for taking the time to support this petition. If you want to know more please contact me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org.
