Install a gate between 63/65 Scott Road and a light source on council land near the existing gates to reduce crime within and nearby the Scott Road Allotments.
Following ongoing anti-social behaviour within and around Scott Road Allotments, we are calling on Solihull Council to provide a light source near the land in front of the existing gate and a gate to be locked at night between 63/65 Scott Road.
Recently, criminal activity within and nearby the Scott Road Allotments has included:
- Sheds being broken into.
- Theft of tools and allotment equipment.
- Drug dealing.
- Theft of property from back gardens accessed from this area.
The land in front of the existing allotment gate has no light sources and is pitch black at night, providing a respite for drug dealing and other criminal activities.
In the local area, all entrances to garages in alleys behind houses are gated off on Scott Road & Scott Grove.
In addition to inhibiting access to criminals and anti-social behaviour, the gate & light source can bring reassurance to nearby homeowners and allotment gardeners and can deter criminal activity in the community. The light will also help when the planned boxing club starts in the cadet building.
We, the undersigned, call on SMBC to install a light source and gate to be locked at night between 63/65 Scott Road.
