Dear Sarah Jones & Chris Philp,

I’m reaching out because I would like to have increased CCTV monitoring in the South Croydon area, this would benefit the local community! Kindly inform me on:

[1] Why its taking you SO LONG to come to any action (CHRIS PHILP)?

[2] What is the quickest path of least friction to bring this into effect (SARAH BROWN)?

Outline:
The area is frequented by a lot of footfall as we’re close to the main roads of Selsdon Road, Southend and Brighton Road.  


There is an arcade/mews near the 412 bus stop with many shops and also betting shops, thus we get people coming and going at all times especially the overspill from Friday and Saturday nights, as there are bars, pubs and clubs.  

The arcade and local church areas have provided a fertile ground for loitering, drug dealing, muggings and anti-social behaviour.  Deterrents like better lighting on the church land/graveyard is welcomed and also CCTV is a must.

PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO FEEL SAFER!

I noticed in local crime reports there’s been recent spike in anti social behaviour in the church.

What good is it if you're just A PAPER MP without the serious will needed to carry out such greatly needed measures through?  If nothing is done, I'll be seriously considering taking my vote elsewhere!

I strongly propose monitoring in the following areas so no-one else has to suffer the same:

ST PETER'S ROAD CHURCH
1, CCTV Inside the Church Graveyard at a high vantage point to create visual presence

2, Better lighting within the Church/Graveyard area


HEATHFIELD ROAD
1, CCTV Looking down Heathfield Road on route where Heathfield Road turns the corner onto Selsdon Road.

2, Improved lighting in the area

SELSDON ROAD
1, CCTV On the corner overlooking the shopping arcade/mews betting shop and seating area
2, Improved lighting in the same area

We need robust and proper CCTV in our area and cannot rely on shops and local business and residents.  Please reply at your earliest convenience.

Residents should not have to buy and manage their own kit to feel safe which is what our block will have to do.
