New CCTV cameras have been installed in select North East Lincolnshire schools as part of preparations for the first day back next month.
The CCTV cameras are meant to deter illegal parking outside schools. Parents who insist on illegal and inconsiderate parking as well as those who will be caught violating dropping-off and pick-up times will be fined £100.
Councillor Shepherd said: "It has to be ready for the start of school in September. I have received reassurances that is going to happen."
He added: "I said cameras for schools had to be first to be operated and then we will focus on the town centres and hopefully have it all operating by the time for Christmas shopping. The parks are a little more problematic given the lines of sight when there are trees and bushes. But we are working on that.
"It will be a fantastic facility for the whole of North East Lincolnshire and will provide a network that can be added to." As well as a purpose-built new control room hub which will have a high standard of security, there are 148 new generation CCTV cameras to be installed throughout North East Lincolnshire.
