New lights to boost safety in Shepherds Bush Green

New lights and CCTV coverage are now helping make Shepherds Bush Green safer at night.

Improved lighting around the play area in Shepherds Bush Green

Hammersmith & Fulham Council has installed more than 20 lights in Shepherds Bush Green to make it safer at night.

Following requests from local residents and businesses, the new lights will better illuminate the central walkway and outer footpaths. The lights are all fitted with motion sensors.

The new lights – added to the rear of existing lampposts – will also improve the area around the war memorial and the playground area, as well as the surrounding junctions at Goldhawk Road, Wood Lane and Uxbridge Road.

Cllr Rebecca Harvey, H&F Cabinet Member for Social Inclusion and Community Safety, said:

These new lights will help deter crime and anti-social behaviour in the area. We’re working with the Met Police and residents to reduce drug dealing and crime, increase safety for women and girls, and ensure everyone feels safe around transport hubs."

Bright coverage

We recently invested £5.4million in our borough-wide CCTV network – with seven cameras upgraded on the Green. The cameras now provide full 360-degree coverage to automatically capture any incidents occurring in the area.

Meanwhile, a further six cameras were installed in the Caxton Village neighbourhood north of the Green. 

Their feeds are monitored 24/7 by our central control room and allow them to guide response teams from the Met and H&F's Law Enforcement Team to the scene of a crime.
