Crime and anti-social behaviour are on the agenda for a meeting on Friday 20 July with police and politicians.
The borough’s police chief Sue Williams, MP Iain Duncan Smith and Leader of Redbridge Council Keith Prince will face the public at St Marys Church in High Road, South Woodford between 5pm-7pm.
Local residents say anti-social behaviour is associated with the bars and clubs in the area — Funky Mojoe withdrew an application to extend their opening hours while Luxe in Loughton also recently applied for later closing. Both clubs have been plagued with anti-social behaviour outside and complaints from residents.
Despite Tempus Court and Manor Lodge residents meeting with the owners of Funky Mojoe to try and resolve some of the issues, they say nothing has changed.
The area’s burglary statistics are also up for discussion, with residents demanding more visible policing.
The meeting will take place on Friday 20 July at 5pm to 7pm, in St Marys Church, High Road, South Woodford.
