- Drug dealing
- Anti social behaviour, in particular around Smalley Road Estate
The local Safer Neighbourhood Team also updated residents about the successful Crackdown operation on Amhurst Road at the end of last year. Hackney Council and the Police worked together following complaints about late night noise and anti social behaviour from an unlicensed basement club under Lime Cay restaurant. Noise equipment was seized, but the problems continued.
The Safer Neighbourhood Team in Stoke Newington Central worked with local residents to collect evidence of the disturbances, and Thames Magistrates Court granted the closure order on 13th December. The restaurant is still open for business, but the basement has been secured. This was a regular source of noise nuisances and residents have reported that it has been a lot quieter since.
Remember - if you want to report late night noise - call 020 8356 4455.
