I am writing to you about the recent escalation of non-resident youth disturbance across the estate. It is essential that residents report incidents of disturbance and it is helpful to note the date, time and response to your call.
Camden’s Housing Patrol operates from 6pm to 2am each night. The Housing Patrol can be contacted on:

Several years ago the TRA got funding from Camden to put up signs across the estate, including signs on all playground areas stating clearly:
1. these areas are only for the use of Curnock Street Estate residents and their guests
2. the age group the area is for
3. times when these areas can be used We were assured that this would make it easier to have people removed. We need to reassert this position.
Thank you to those residents who are reporting incidents. The TRA’s next step will be to call for greater intervention by both Camden and the police. If these youths continue to make residents’ lives unbearable they need to be identified and prevented from taking over our estate.
A TRA General Meeting will be arranged for late September/early October and we’ll invite a representative from Camden to address anti-social issues and their resolutions. Please check the noticeboard in your block for further information.
