SECURITY & PERIMETER FENCING PETITION

SUMMARY

This petition is about security around the estate as well as the perimeter fencing which is a project that we think will improve the security considerably and subsequently improve the residents’ quality of life.

We have started this petition in order to collect enough support for the project from the residents. At the same time, we will ask the local councillors for their support in order to secure the necessary funds. While the time-frame for this project is long and difficult, Curnock Street TRA believes that it is worth the effort and time. It is a project that will improve our lives inside the estate, reduce the crime and reduce our expenses.

During the last 20 years, the residents have experienced many incidents of ASB and even threats against themselves. Almost all of those incidents were from people who did not live on the estate and /or did not have any links or connections to the estate residents.

By fencing the estate and keeping the ASB people away of the estate, the crime will be reduced significantly and the communal areas could be used again for the residents’s leisure activities or well-being. Open bin bags, litter from businesses or non residents will be eliminated and the communal areas will be cleaner.

The original plans in 2001 for fencing the estate were very expensive and destructive due to major works needed outside and inside every flat. Those plans included the isolation of each block and the construction of concrete corridors that in our opinion would be more dangerous than the current open plan design. Those plans had being rejected by the residents and the then TRA.

In the meantime, Curnock Street TRA has already proposed many other security improvements. Some of them like the CCTV cameras (Billingley and Thurnscoe) and better lighting (Warmsworth and Mexborough) have been implemented while some others like blockage of paths and certain areas are in progress.

Curnock Street TRA has already proposed a few security improvements to the estate (better lighting, moving forward the fence behind Warmsworth, block certain paths, etc) which are waiting planning approval.

Regarding the perimeter fencing, Curnock Street TRA has become aware of new non destructive solutions that are cheaper, require minimal construction and no alterations or wiring to the flats. Residents would be able to open the gates from their flats or anywhere in the world.

The gates will be installed with a system that basically calls the residents landline or mobile when someone is calling their flat from the gates panel.

Apart from the perimeter fencing which is the ultimate goal for the security of the estate, Curnock Street TRA is trying to secure the construction of some gates in order to reduce the exits to the estate as per the police recommendations. More information can be found at: http://curnockstreetestate.com/major-works/security-gates-2018/ 

The main reason for the installation of the new gates is the reduction of the ASB inside the estate and especially on the path between those two buildings. Many non residents have used that path for ASB because it is hidden from the main road and allow them to escape via four different routes. By closing this path will discourage the non residents from visiting the estate. If they do visit then they will have to pass in front of the CCTV cameras in which case the police and the Responsive Security Patrol will have some evidence/intelligence.

The gates will be closed and residents will not have access to those gates. However, if the situation on the estate improves then we will request the gates to be unlocked.

Perimeter Fencing

This petition is about the perimeter fencing around the Curnock Street Estate and any other security works. It is a project that we think will improve the security on the estate and subsequently the residents’ quality of life.

We have started this petition in order to collect enough support for the project from the residents. At the same time, we will ask the local councillors for their support in order to secure the necessary funds.

While the time-frame for this project is long and difficult, Curnock Street TRA believes that it worth the effort and time. It is a project that will improve our lives inside the estate, reduce the crime and reduce our expenses.

Please sign the petition to support the installation of the perimeter fencing on the estate.

WHAT

YOU

SAID

I frequently have to deal with groups of people who come into our block and take over the communal staircase, smoking, drinking, using drugs, blocking the staircase and making a terrible mess (including urinating and defecating). When I ask them to leave, they just become abusive and threatening. One night, at 4am, a group tried to force my door and get into my flat. Also, since we have had the new bin houses installed outside Mexborough, people still come in from outside to use them, dump large items on the ground, and also go through the rubbish.

F.W.

Mexborough

I have lived in Mexborough for 6 years now and … the smell of weed continuously coming into our flat. Groups of druggies coming in and out of the flats. I have witnessed drug dealing outside.  I have also witnessed local druggies trying to gain  entry into the block to shelter from the rain.  People urinating  outside where the bins are and the commercial units  using our bins to dump their waste. And also residents from the private block of flats on Pratt Street using the bins. Also we have people who literally empty the bins to take stuff out most mornings. Leaving the rubbish on the ground.

Mexborough

Many times I have witnessed drug dealings as well as drugs abuse by non residents around Goldthorpe as well as on other parts of the estate. The constant abuse of the rubbish bins by businesses and non residents creates an unpleasant environment for the tenants and their guests. Loitering of youth groups in communal areas creates noise nuisance and insecurity to every resident who lives nearby.

D.P.

Goldthorpe

Often heavy drug takers and drug dealers ring residents’ doors in Goldthorpe and enter the building and then use the bin house to take drugs. Young children in the family are so scared to go to school in case they are abused or hurt and mothers too. They are a huge risk to vulnerable residents and as a local authority Camden should protect and value residents’ security.

F.R.

Goldthorpe

Fed up of junkies coming in to the estate and leaving human waste, needles, using drugs been left behind, and the smell. pls pls do something about it.

S.U.

Curnock Estate

The rear of Warmsworth is used as a meeting point for drug dealers and users. I witness this almost daily. The bushes at the side of Warmsworth is used by dealers, users and the general public as a toilet. People go through the bins in front of Billingley ripping the bags open and leaving rubbish all over the floor which obviously encourages rats. Someone was stabbed right outside my flat and drugs are dealt and taken in front of my kitchen window.

S.B.

Billingley

It needs to happen. They do drugs outside of flats with small children and it scares them. They do it in the parks and football pitches so the kids can’t use them as well as they empty the bins all over the place. It’s an absolute nightmare for anybody living on the estate when a lot could be done to prevent these problems.
