Stamping out anti-social behaviour and crime in New Malden

Blagdon Road Rec
Paul, Terry & Raju have been campaigning with local businesses and residents for CCTV to be installed in Blagdon Road Recreation ground to fight anti-social behaviour. At a recent Council meeting, the CCTV was approved by Conservative Councillors!

Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator Paul Bedforth, local school founder Raju Pandya and Councillor Terry Paton have successfully campaigned with local residents for CCTV to be installed in Blagdon Road Recreation Ground.

When Terry was elected in July 2013, he promised he would do his best to cut anti-social behaviour and crime in New Malden following a series of violence over the summer months.

At a recent Council committee meeting, New Malden’s Conservative Councillors voted to install CCTV in the park.

Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator Paul Bedforth said:

This is a huge success for local residents. CCTV will go some way to discourage gangs from hanging round the park. We will continue to look for ways to cut crime and anti-social behaviour in New Malden.

CCTV will be installed over the coming months.
