We DONT want a detention centre to replace the Jacobs well Enviromental centre.

This petition had 2,080 supporters

They are trying to change the environmental centre at Jacobs Well to a youth detention centre. 

This will have SO many negative impacts.. Including but not limited to - firstly the fact that the environmental centre which has been a school for generations and now teaches over 5000 children a year environmental issues to children, holds community events and also holds school camps they are trying to replace that with a detention centre that 'might' help 12 boys. But in all honesty I think it will cause chaos and higher crime rates in Jacobs well. The local school bus stop is right at the front of the centre. 

I personally live right next door to the centre and they will be able to see straight into my house and also my children and myself will have a great safety risk considering they are not going to make this a prison environment for them, they will have a sense of freedom and have the ability to cause more harm and chaos - in which my family and children are right next door. 


The staff at the environmental centre will be left without jobs, the community will be left without a amazing community hub in which both children and adult enjoy, and I will be left living next to a detention centre.
