Park Place Villas Neighbourhood Watch
The Park Place Villas NW scheme covers slightly more than the square block described by Warwick Avenue, Maida Avenue, Park Place Villas, and Howley Place. There are also a few residents further down PPV towards St Marys Terraces, on Maida Avenue towards Edgware Road, and in barges on Regents Canal who heard about our NW and have joined us. The motivation for resurrecting this NW (which had existed but fallen idle) was to share information about crimes and suspicious characters after a number of home burglaries, prowlers, and automobile break-ins. That is accomplished satisfactorily by means of an email list which residents can use to alert the entire group about crimes, actual, attempted, or potential. The NW has also met several times with the local Safer Neighbourhood Team, and keeps security its priority, rather than morphing into a more social entity.
