Contact has been made by RMT suburban Committee Member, Stephen Barker with a Police Sergeant at Woodford Green police station regarding issues at nightspots in nearby South Woodford.
Issues raised were the constant touting by Redbridge Cars outside ‘Funky Mojoes’ in the High Road E18 and the Lounge Lizard bar in George Lane. These sites have twice been visited by Deputy Director of LT/PH Helen Chapman but despite being touted on several occasions, nothing appears to have happened regarding enforcement.
The Police sergeant who heads the neighbourhood team that consists of a PC and two community support officers, has assured our committee member that he will liaise with the safer transport at night teams and report to them the problems at these venues.
Regular meetings with the borough and neighbourhood teams are attended by local member of parliament Mr Iain Duncan-Smith, who is aware of the issues at these venues which are also subject to complaints by local residents regarding noise concerns.
Ongoing dialogue has been promised to our committee member
