Racist/offensive graffiti - Sycamore Mews & Sandcliffe Road

Reported via desktop in the Graffiti category anonymously at 11:02, Friday 11 March 2022

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3379950.

Dear Bexley Council / Councillor Joe Ferreira of Erith Ward.

Please find attached evidence of graffiti in the underpass near Sandcliffe Road and graffiti in the stairwell near Sycamore Mews, St Johns Road, Erith.

This is an ongoing, severe problem in these 2 roads of long standing graffiti, often of a sexual or racist nature.

Other long-standing issues, in the same 2 roads, include regular occurrences of illegal misuse of drugs, loitering in groups and anti-social behaviour.

This type of thing used to happen in the disused car park below Sycamore Mews until it was recently discovered to be unsecured and was subsequently re-secured to prevent unauthorised entry.

The main, current, problem areas I have identified within these 2 roads is ‘the underpass’ near Sandcliffe Road and ‘the stairwell’ attached to Sycamore Mews in St Johns Road.

I believe there is a wider issue here, which is of a lack of proper lighting in the vicinity, no CCTV, lack of authoritive presence and the area being a ‘secluded and closed off area’.

For these reasons: • May I strongly recommend installing CCTV in this underpass for safety reasons? • Could patrols from community support officers from Bexley Police be increased for these 2 specified roads?

I feel these responsive actions would highly serve as a deterrent for any future issues, which I have mentioned above, to happen.

Regards, Charlie Springer Bexley resident at: 6 Sycamore Mews, St Johns Road, Erith, DA8 1NR
