Yobs are forcing us out of our homes: Shoebury residents plagued by antisocial behaviour

Four Rivers estate – scenes of the area include graffiti, broken fences and damaged garage doors

Four Rivers estate – scenes of the area include graffiti, broken fences and damaged garage doors

First published in Echo News by

ANTISOCIAL behaviour is forcing some Shoebury residents from their homes.

Residents on the Four Rivers estate, which comprises Avon Way, Chelmer Way, Crouch Way and Stour Close, have complained of broken garden fences, damaged cars and loud noise late at night.

One anonymous resident claimed up to seven families have either moved or are trying to move from the estate because it has got so bad.

The estate is managed by South Essex Homes and complaints have been lodged about the disturbances in recent months, but residents say nothing has been done.

An anonymous resident said: “It is all the good families going and all the ones whose kids cause trouble are staying. They should be accountable for their children’s actions.

“There are good people on the estate and it could be a nice place to live, but at the moment it is not.

“I’ve called South Essex Homes’s out-of-hours phone line and made reports, as I know other neighbours have, but heard nothing back.

“It just feels like they couldn’t care about their jobs or our homes.”

Some residents believe children from other estates congregate on the Four Rivers, adding to the trouble.

Julie Harris of Stour Close, said: “They make noise and spray graffiti, screaming and shouting until all hours.”

A fellow resident has also suffered at the hands of rowdy children in recent months.

Southend Standard:

She said: “We’ve had mud put through our door and people knocking on the door at all times of night.”

Anita McGinley, of South Essex Homes, said it was working with Essex Police regarding recent reports.

She added: “We’ urge residents to report any incidents to South Essex Homes on 0800 833160 or where relevant, Essex Police and will pursue action against individuals where we have sufficient evidence to do so.”

It is becoming commonplace in cities and towns in the US to adopt the under 18 curfew model and more and more places are imposing these curfews because they really do work at cutting crime and antisocial behaviour.
But, and this is a big but, the system needs to have enough police patrols to ensure compliance, which most US states/counties have. In the UK, however, and especially Essex, the feeble efforts at policing the streets will ensure that any curfew system for under 18s will never work.

To maintain the curfew...a concurrent report suggests the Police has quite a few shotguns and rifles to dispose of. Find a group of volunteers and let them sort it.

Most kids that get together act as a group because you don't know who they are. When get to know who they are where they live they tend to move on.
Its not that difficult but takes time. Follow one of them and see where they live then with that information go on the Electoral Register to get the name of the Parents. When you have a few of there names call the kids with there surname and give them there address. Because they know you who they are they usually move on.

Within any area of social housing, there will often be those who get off, complaining, very often their sad no nothing lives, are suddenly catapulted into something half interesting, such as keeping a beady eye out for any thing different than a deserted town.
I think the council, and quite rightly, will take the complaints with a generous pinch of salt, as all the bad eggs are together, down there, you'll never please everyone.

Complete and utter BS. Forty years ago we didn't have such things either. But we enjoyed ourselves without causing a nuisance to others. The problem is the scummy families and their kids that have no respect for other people or their property. They need to be removed from civilised society. Australia is no longer an option but we must have some deserted islands in the north of Scotland where we can dump them.

initially it will take a lot of resources but the persistent offenders will soon be identified and tagged if necessary with the guardians dealt with severely. if crime stats plummet (and they will) surely this is an effective use of police resources.

Regards, Smiffy22[/p][/quote]i live near this estate and i know the problems . but honestly i know for a fact if there was more to do kids would not be on the streets playing up and misbehaving and such like. have you thought that maybe these kids are also playing up as a cry for help like maybe their home life isn't great so they go out doing these things as a cry for help ? i have been known to punch bus shelters etc when angry maybe these kids just like need somewhere to expel their energy ??????? think about it before you judge!
