We want to hear how safe you feel across the borough of Hounslow – from Bedfont to Chiswick.
Published: Monday, 3rd February 2020
Hounslow is not a high crime borough, and it is not a gang borough, but crime is changing, and we know there’s always more we can do to make sure our communities and neighbourhoods are safe.
We want to stop crime getting worse by focusing on prevention, but we can’t do it without you.
That’s why we want to know what makes you feel safe, or less safe, and what concerns you have about crime in the borough. Are there places where you feel less safe than others? Why is that? And what can you do to help?
Whether you live, work or visit here, please spend a few minutes to share your views using our online interactive map. You can drop a pin on the area where you feel safe or less safe and tell us why that is. You can do this as many times as you like. This will help us build up a detailed picture of safety concerns across the borough, and the impact this has on our residents and communities. The map is available on Commonplace.
In addition, we will be holding over 20 community engagement meetings across the borough where you can meet us and discuss your thoughts and ideas.
Your comments and feedback, which will remain anonymous, will directly influence our community safety strategy for 2020/23 and the actions we will take to ensure we keep Hounslow safe.
Cllr Katherine Dunne, Cabinet Member for Communities and Climate Change at Hounslow Council said:
“Compared to many other London boroughs, Hounslow is not a high crime borough, but of course crime does occur, and sometimes it can be very serious. We want to ensure we are doing everything we can to safeguard our communities and keep crime low across the whole borough.
“You can help us target our efforts in the right way by sharing your views and experiences with us. Please do complete our online survey, or come along to a public event, to make sure we can capture your views and ideas.
“Help us keep Hounslow safe, together.”
