Chrissie Courtney - Chair
Earl's Court Square Residents' Association.

I have been corresponding with Felicity Buchan MP regarding whether Police should be contacted on 101 or 999.  Contrary to all we have previously been told it looks as if “there is a crime unfolding in front of the informant, 999 is the first port of call.”

Inspector Meredydd Jones: 

People can contact their local ward officer through the Met website (https://www.met.police.uk and type in your postcode), email the office directly, can anonymously contact Crimestoppers (https://crimestoppers-uk.org/give-information/forms/give-information-anonymous) and also make their submission that way. If you see it happening in front of you, call 999, and we will send officers straight away.” 

William Lane Communications Officer, Office of Felicity Buchan MP - MP for Kensington:

Call 999:   “More generally, the advice that Felicity Buchan MP has received from Police since her election is that 999 is not just for serious violent crime, but for ongoing, non-violent crime which is occurring at the present time and requires a police response. It's part of the job of the 999 call-handlers to triage between the seriousness of ongoing crimes and allocate resources.”

Call 101:   “101, we have been told, is more geared towards reporting crimes after the fact, when an immediate police response is not required, but a crime has still taken place (e.g. returning home to find your house burgled).”

NOISE COMPLAINTS - FROM CLLR JOHNNY THALASSITES - RBKC

Dear Resident,

In September 2020 - using a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) - Kensington and Chelsea Council trialled Britain’s first acoustic cameras in Knightsbridge.

Building on that work, I have asked officers to start gathering evidence so that we can expand the PSPO area. This would mean we can use acoustic cameras to enforce against noisy vehicles across the borough.

I know that local people are fed up with noisy vehicles tearing down our streets all day and night.

We have set up a dedicated inbox for resident complaints about vehicle noise to help us justify the introduction of the new PSPO.

Please do write to:

PSPO@rbkc.gov.uk

Many thanks in anticipation for your support. Let’s drive down the number of noisy vehicles keeping us up.

Best wishes,

Cllr Johnny Thalassites

21.04.2021

In March 2020, we voted unanimously to pilot acoustic cameras in Kensington and Chelsea; and in October 2020 - using a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) - we trialled acoustic cameras in Knightsbridge.

Building on that work, I have asked officers to start gathering evidence so that we can expand the PSPO area. This would mean we can use acoustic cameras to enforce against noisy vehicles across the borough.

As part of the evidence gathering process, a dedicated inbox has been set up for resident complaints about vehicle noise.

Please do pass on residents’ complaints about vehicle noise to:

PSPO@rbkc.gov.uk

Many thanks in anticipation for your support. Let’s drive down the number of noisy vehicles keeping us up.
