A PETITION signed by 350 concerned Kirk Hallam shoppers has been handed to the council calling for CCTV at a shopping precinct.
The area around the shops in Queen Elizabeth Way has been dubbed a hotspot for anti-social behaviour after a string of violent incidents in the last few months.
Erewash Borough Council cabinet member Cllr Mike Wallis received the petition, which has been at the Hon Way Chinese takeaway for a number of weeks, from Linda Frudd, wife of Kirk Hallam councillor John Frudd.
Cllr Frudd told the Advertiser last week that residents were ‘very positive’ about the idea.
“They’ve had enough and want to see some sort of action to put an end to this now,” he said.
Ashley Paylor, 26, had to have 70 stitches after having a bottle smashed in his face in July near the shops.
Thugs also smashed a for sale sign through a window on the street in August just minutes before Paula Fletcher’s baby would have been sat in its path.
