Conservatives win door entry systems for Strongbow

Following a question by Eltham North Councillor Spencer Drury at the February Council meeting, the Council have confirmed that the blocks of flats in Strongbow Crescent will receive door entry systems over the summer. 


At the February Council meeting, Spencer pointed out that the damage to flats and stairwells in the blocks at Strongbow had become a recurring theme at the Eltham North ward Safer Neighbourhood Team meetings, with police regularly having to patrol the flats. 


Spencer has raised the problem with the Council in the past and been informed that Strongbow was a priority however, the promise of action has never been fulfilled, until now.


Spencer said “I’m so pleased that the pressure that Cllr Poston and I have put the Council has finally paid off.  We seem to have been questioning Councillors and Officers about this for many years and it is pleasing to achieve a positive outcome for residents.  Hopefully this will lead to a calmer atmosphere inside the blocks and residents will feel safer in their own homes.”
