24 April 2024: Preet updates Kelmscott Road residents after recent visit

On 8 March, Preet visited Harborne for her weekly door knocking session. One of the primary concerns that was repeatedly raised on doorsteps was crime, and the disrepair of pavement.


Regarding the latter, Preet is now in contact with Birmingham Highways Department about inspecting and hopefully repairing the pavements on Kelmscott Road. Conversations remain ongoing.


Meanwhile, across the constituency, crime is one of the most common issues raised with Preet.


Preet is in weekly contact with ward Sergeants, Edgbaston's Constituency Inspector, and others at West Midlands Police. Preet also regularly raises concerns with the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner.


Preet also campaigned for years to re-open Quinton Police Station - a campaign that has succeeded, with the Station set to re-open this year!


The matter of crime and policing has also been raised by Preet with the Home Secretary in a letter dated 16 February 2023 which you can access online here.


One of the next Labour Government's five missions is to Take Back Our Streets - read our plan here.


Preet raised concerns with the Police in Harborne. They have informed her that the Force are treating vehicle crime and residential burglaries as priority matters. Extra resources have been secured; an overtime budget has allowed neighbourhood officers to extend their hours on duty; forensics are attending all burglaries to maximise the chances of arresting offenders; patrols are being carried out in unmarked vehicles; the intelligence team are analysing information to support investigations; there is Force Traffic and Response coverage at night.
