Chalvey Road West ‘unbearable’ disorder due to anti-social behavior
A Chalvey RESIDENT said the anti-social behavior happening on his road was ‘unbearable’.
Cabdullaahi Axmed, who lives on Chalvey Road West, said he and other residents were “fed up” with the mess left on the corner of Alexandra Road.
“The situation is that our neighborhood has become a camp and it’s unbelievable and unbearable,” he said.
“There is a group of adults, teenagers and children who congregate every day, seven days a week, around the corner from the Alexandra Road junction, just behind K’s Pizza.
“They have no respect for other communities, they are not violent, but they do damage by leaving behind trash such as roasted sunflower seeds, candy wrappers, take-out containers, cans of Coke and Red Bull.
“They also talk loudly, disturbing and annoying everyone.
“These out-of-school children are constantly crossing Chalvey Road West without paying attention or riding their scooters.”
Mr. Axmed added that the group was also obstructing local businesses.
“We don’t have any peace on our street,” he said.
“All the locals and local businesses are fed up and the majority don’t live there, so why are they making our lives miserable?”
A spokesperson for Slough Borough Council explained that the Resilience and Enforcement Team and Thames Valley Police had been aware of the groups around Alexandra Road for some time.
The police have received ongoing complaints from residents and patrols will be put in place.
The spokesperson added that the environmental services team agreed to pick up litter in the area and have a mini road sweeper cleaned daily.

They explained: “People have the right to gather and have conversations in any public space, so we ask residents to be tolerant of each other and treat each other with respect.
“If people are gathered around talking and socializing outside their properties, or anywhere in a public space, and causing anti-social behavior, harassment, alarm or threat, this should be reported. ”
The council said that to act against anyone causing anti-social behavior in the area, they would need evidence.

The spokesperson added: ‘When residents report incidents, it is important that they provide as much accurate information as possible about what they witnessed.
“Try to identify the people involved at every opportunity.
“If you don’t know the name of the person(s), but can describe them or know their nickname, let us know. »
The council is also encouraging residents to provide a street name or house number where the incidents occur.
The spokesperson said: “Tell what really happened, including any inappropriate language used, as this helps to better understand what happened and can be powerful evidence in court.
“It is important that you include how the incident impacted your normal life.”
If residents see antisocial behavior, they should report it to the police or call 101.
And they can report it to the council via the online form.
