Just had to listen to our local crack addict shout and fight with her dealer where Devonshire Road meets Boveney Road (Honor Oak Park station end) For anyone else who had to listen to her nonsense please speak up with the Forest Hill Safer Neighbourhood Team?

I worry about kids listening to this when they are trying to sleep.

if you contacted the police is it worth other people, complaining too? I agree this sort of thing is very annoying for people trying to relax in their homes

Absolutely, if it bothered others it's definitely worth others logging it with the police.
The more information the police have about these behaviours the better. They can get a sense of drug dealing activity in the area and deal with it accordingly.

It's worth telling the neighbourhood safety team.
They need information like this to help make our neighbourhood safer.

Disturbed early hours of the morning by the same very loud argument/fight - had heard before and thought it was partners' squabble. The intensity made me fear someone was going get hurt. The noise was such it travelled to HOP.

Yes I was woken up by it at roughly 01:00
Very loud and violent sounding argument.
Was wondering if it was worth saying anything.
I got an oddly disinterested response from the community police unit about the previous incident.
The drug dealing activity in this area is usually quite discreet. I can see it happening but the people doing it usually have manners and keep it low key. It's a shame it's becoming so blatant, aggressive and disruptive to residential life in Honor Oak.

If I was an immediate neighbour, I would call the police out of concern but clearly the neighbours don't hear anything or are not confident to do so. I suppose the police would only act if they were called at the time of the altercation but I am surprised that when something like this is happening so ''openly'' they don't want to just keep an eye on things.

Thanks for the update. Friend had advised calling crime stoppers anonymously next time the situation was live. Hopefully won't be necessary.

Once the police get to know them and know they aren't a physical threat to anyone or themselves, they won't even bother coming out. Just ask the residents of Canonbie Road. Although I haven't heard anything recently so maybe thst has calmed down now.



Do these people live in Council Flats or Private Rented/Housing Benefit? I'm guessing it's the latter. Therefore theres nothing that can be done.


There used to be this old druggy couple on Manor Mount / Davids Road who would scream the street down for an hour every month. Haven't heard them for years I heard the woman died.

I have been researching things and found a good website for ASB

http://asbhelp.co.uk/community-trigger/

It is worth reporting anti-social behaviour because the people behaving badly will be fined or evicted if enough complaints go in consistently.

Further to the above link I have found the exact link to contact Lewisham Council about ASB - this will be handy for anyone else experiencing ongoing ASB in Lewisham.
