Question 1 – Hi, In Welldon Crescent HA1, (outside the Welldon Centre) we have a huge drugs dealing problem with regular drive by drop offs and other dealings. I have called the Police a few times and left messages asking for them to get back to me. Unfortunately, they are not responding so I’m not sure it’s high on their list of priorities. Many of my other neighbours have witnessed it and feel it is time something is done. I have many photos and videos of the culprits with car registrations. On Friday afternoon, 28th Sept 2018, I managed to get a photo of a deal going down and a Police car drove passed slowly. It eventually stopped a few yards up the road for about 5 seconds and then drove off. If you would like to see the picture I can send it in. Can you please let me know what is being done to combat this increasing crime and why the Police do not appear to be interested in tackling this problem?
Police Response: Welldon Crescent is high on Greenhill SNTs priorities and officers are down there on a regular basis. Working with the council to try to get hold of all the owners of the garages there which is where the problems are occurring as the plan is to get them all knocked down (this will of course take time).
We are also getting a camera installed there on one of the lamp posts…this was attempted the other day by the contractor, but due to a redesign of lamp posts recently, there was no available electricity point to be able to connect the camera up. This is being addressed and we hope to have electric and the camera in the next week or so.
