More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Until a Report number is generated automatically I recommend making a note of exactly when you made the report(s), especially if you didn’t leave your name or have sent in details on more than one report.

When making a report...

If you think there’s CCTV footage say so and give the camera positions – it should save time in getting someone to view the footage.

If it’s part of an ongoing problem or reports have previously been made about the same perpetrator, say so and give the “Case number” if you know it.

Sun 4th Oct

Next week (from Monday 5th Oct
) a new Hackney wide

ASB reporting website

will be up for you to comment on.

It won’t go “live” until comments and suggestions have been taken from panels and residents.

The draft I’ve contributed towards offers the opportunity to remain completely anonymous or remain anonymous and still get an acknowledgement to the report and updates by leaving just an email address or mobile phone number, both of which could easily be disposable.

I hope the idea persists because I think it will encourage those residents who would like to know that something is being done but are concerned about giving their names, even with assurances of confidentiality.

The draft also had a “What to expect” link button on the first & last pages going to

new Service Standards for

(1.) time to acknowledement of the report

(2.) time to CCTV being viewed and

(3.) time to a “Case number” and officer being assigned.


The first page of the draft also had this graphic:

Although the web button almost certainly won’t look quite like the above

I hope it’s still there as a large link button.

Next week you can see if it’s content is the same as the above draft.

I am assured that each report will generate a unique “Report Number” so that you can easily refer to your report and chase it up if the service standards aren’t met.

This site is being built by Hackney Homes so that later on it can be fully incorporated into the new “Universal Housing” software from Civica. It doesn’t has all the features of “ASBnet” that we had hoped would be introduced and which had the backing of at least one councillor and some senior Hackney Homes staff but it should suffice as long as the associated new service standards are met.


As soon as the website is up for comments

I’ll post the link here, so check back

next week, starting on Monday 5th October
