Wallington South SNT Ward Panel Meeting

It was agreed to keep the same ward priorities for the next three months as:

  • Burglary – covering Woodcote Avenue: Woodcote Road; Park Hill Road; Boundary Road; Brambledown Road, Ross Road.
  • Road Safety – concentrating on Woodcote Road (south of Sainsbury/BHF junction); also Onslow Gardens and Blenheim Gardens.
  • Litter and Fly Tipping – in the vicinity of the High Street, including Ross Parade; Beddington Gardens; Shotfield; and also Clyde Road.

The police sergeant reported back on the mobile phone and speed gun operations that had been carried out in the ward resulting in a number of offenders receiving warnings. He also reported on the successful police operation to catch those responsible for a borough-wide burglary spree.

Myself and Cllr Hall reported back on various issues in the ward, particularly focusing on the Wallington improvement works currently being implemented in the high street. Cllr Hall advised that the works were expected to be completed by early July and that the current most disruptive element was due to the work around the soakaways under the bridge. This work would soon move to Ross Parade necessitating its closure for two to three weeks, but the end result should mean no more flooding under the railway bridge. The improvements are being overseen by a group of local residents, traders and other key stakeholders who meet fortnightly. The ward panel has been represented by Sgt Le Shirley.

Under other business there was a discussion about the ongoing problem of littering and the need to change people’s behaviour. A number of interventions will be considered further.
