High Street SNT Ward Panel

.

The Ward Panel meets every couple of months to discuss, informally, issues concerning community safety and policing in High Street ward, Walthamstow. The panel comprises local residents, ward councillors and police officers, with representatives from the Council's Housing department and Enforcement section. It's an opportunity to find out what's been happening generally in the ward, with reports from our Safer Neighbourhood Team, and to influence and support the team's priorities in coming weeks. Take a look at our (mercifully short!) constitution for more details.

We normally meet in the Administrative offices of The Mall, Selborne Walk (above Asda!), usually at 7pm on a mid-week evening. While this isn't the best forum to raise specific one-off concerns, (contact the team directly to do that), we do always welcome residents who'd like to be part of this monitoring and feedback process over a period. If you'd like to be involved do get in touch. Contact Philip Herlihy (Tel: 07931 546660) for more details.
