CCTV Needed Alleyway Victoria Road/The Croft

We the undersigned petition Hillingdon Council to install CCTV in the alleyway running alongside St. Gregory's Church from Victoria Road to The Croft, South Ruislip.

The alleyway that runs alongside St. Gregory's Church on Victoria Road is used by many elderly people and indeed families with young children as a cut through from Victoria Road to The Croft. This walkway needs to have CCTV installed as it is being used for various criminal activities and anti-social behaviour, especially after dark. Even the lighting is not too great there and now that it is coming into Winter this walkway will be totally out of bounds for many of our elderly community who regularly use it as a shortcut. It is the same alleyway where, after a fatal stabbing, the accused used to get away from the crime scene.

On reaching 20 signatures it will be formally considered by the Council and relevant Cabinet Member. Local ward Councillors will also be made aware of the petition. The Council's Democratic Services Team will keep the lead petitioner updated on progress.

This ePetition ran from 13/10/2023 to 14/11/2023 and has now finished.
