Flyde Council has approved proposals to replace CCTV cameras in St Annes, Lytham and Kirkham as part of a scheme that aims to tackle anti-social behaviour.
Subject to Capital budgetary provision being confirmed through the 2022/23 budget process, it is expected that four rapid redeployable cameras will also be used to replace the two mobile CCTV vans currently in use. The cameras are designed to deliver live and recorded high-definition images via a 4G mobile transmission.
Coun Tommy Threlfall, chairman of the committee which met to discuss the plans, said: “Community safety is greatly important to us. Having effective CCTV across the borough’s town centres and hot spots is imperative to keeping our residents and visitors safe.”
Coun Threlfall added: “It is clear from the number of incidents recorded throughout 2019 – 2020 that CCTV is a necessity in not only tackling crime and anti-social behaviour, but in helping the police to bring those responsible to justice.
“We are fully committed at the council to always striving to improve services which benefit the borough and help to keep it safe. The new CCTV provision looks to do just this.”
