As mentioned, local SNT are taking action based on info passed on by local people and two of your local councillors (Patrick Diamond and I) at ward panel meetings. But please do contact police directly if you see drug dealing/associated crime immediately - or call 999. I do the same if I see anything suspicious (and I only live round the corner and pass Draper House twice a day which is why I pressed for action in this area).
Draper Estate tenants and leaseholders directly pay for the concierge service, yet the terms under which this service operates are not in the public domain.
In your position as local councilor, NeilC, would it be possible for you let us know what procedures LBS formally requires the concierge on Draper to perform in relation to crimes of a continuous nature such as regular drug dealing on the estate?
Also worth taking into consideration, would be a greater level of liaison between the security operatives at Strata and those at Draper: together they would be in a much stronger position in monitoring drug dealing, particularly since the car park area (once part of the Draper Estate, but shamefully sold off, depriving Draper residents of their parking spaces) is a likely location for wrong doings.
