Earls Court Police Issues

We hereby call on Sadiq Khan, as Mayor of London, and the Metropolitan Police to review their plans set out in the Draft Strategy for Consultation July 2017 as failing to reflect the needs of a densely populated inner London borough such as the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

These proposals, given the incremental reduction in policing in the previous administrations, leave areas of the capital seriously under-equipped to cope with crime.

It would leave the borough with only one operational police station and undesignated replacements for our Safer Neighbourhood (SN) hubs.

We would like to see the re-opening of Kensington Police Station on Earl’s Court Road as a fully operational police station, with efficient desk staffing, and the retention of the Safer Neighbourhood Team hub (Police Office) in Kenway Road

Cyber fraud might have increased, technology might have improved, but other street crimes continue to be committed and require a dedicated police presence that is appropriately resourced — one size does not fit all and must meet the needs of residents.

OUR AREAS OF CONCERN

  • The proposed closure and sale of Notting Hill Station with relocation of staff to Kensington Police Station
  • The proposed closure of the SN Hubs: Royalty Studios, St John’s Church, Pavilion Road, Kenway Road
  • Closure of the partnership spaces at Chelsea Town Hall Library
  • Closure of the partnership space at Kensington Central Library
