Help Our Estate With Better Lighting Due To Further Crime
Hello Everyone, I would really appreciate if everyone could please sign this Petition to help me and our Community by having the Townsville Council put more lighting in all the parks and all the footpath areas to help us be able to see better and hoping to prevent less crime happening in Kalynda Chase, Bohle Plains, Qld 4817. I am hoping for at least 200 signatures, even if you do not live in the Estate. If you too are having issues with crime in your area, please make a Petition and have everyone sign it. The more the better.
I am a local of Kalynda Chase. The street lighting especially in the parks and footpaths beside homes has no lighting what so ever. The main street and other streets have street lights, but none where it is also important for all the residence here. When someone is walking down the footpath at night and hurt themselves e.g. tripping over a fallen branch or being bitten by a King Brown, which I have seen on the footpath late afternoon right beside my home, who is going to be responsible? Every OH&S liabilities have a "Duty of Care" and the council has failed this one rule.
There is groups of criminals who can hide and watch certain homes in the estate without the residence even knowing, as from your home you can not see out on the footpaths or in the parks but they can see straight into your homes and yards. They are also tagging/marking homes that they have bad intentions of doing crime to. I live right beside a footpath which is totally dark at night. I have had intruders jump the council fence connected to my property and have been physically attacked and have had criminals try to break in and enter my home on more than a couple of occasions since I have lived in Kalynda Chase now being my 5th year.
Many homes/stolen cars/personal items & people have been victims of crime here in the Estate. I am a disabled lady who has two teenage boys living with me and my partner works away one week out of a fortnight and I certainly do not feel safe when he is away, actually I do not feel safe in my own home at all, especially with the high crime rate in our Estate which seems to just be getting higher and higher. Please help me and the Community of Kalynda Chase have more lights put in and hopefully will help bring down the crime in our Estate.
