The Acton BID has a mandate to make the area a cleaner and safer place to do business and to ensure it is more welcoming for visitors.

To do so, we continuously report various issues to make sure it is graffiti free and that fly tipping incidents are removed promptly. We have also hired My Local Bobby team that will ensure that the area is safer by working with businesses to increase safety, prevent crime and reduce anti-social behaviours.

For the month of October, the Acton BID reported various issues such as:

  • Over 45 issues of fly tipping incidents
  • 17 counts of graffiti on business shop fronts and street furniture
  • 10 other types of incidents, including streets not clean, pavement issues and abandoned bicycles.

My Local Bobby team has attended various incidents which includes:

  • 26 incidents related to beggars
  • 43 incidents related to Antisocial behaviours (i.e., street drinking, noise disturbance, etc.)
  • 25 incidents related to crime (i.e., shoplifting)
  • 4 incidents related to drugs (i.e., drug dealing, drug taking).

Overall, the MLB team has reported over 100 incidents during the month of October.

We have also worked with Ealing Council to clean the alleyway between 88-90 High Street and remove all fly tipping items. We have also worked with the owner to assure the area is secured and locked to reduce the continuous fly tipping and Antisocial behaviour issues in that area.
