Hadleigh and Sudbury's CCTV network is set to be upgraded with a £180,000 funding. The current network of cameras in two towns, which were installed in 2000, has been described as severely outdated.
Proposals to upgrade the CCTV network have been given the green light by Babergh District Council's cabinet on Monday. The local government has agreed to approve the £180,000 budget for the scheme, beginning with a £43,000 short-term upgrade to the cameras, which will be completed within a few months. The remaining £137,000 will be used to establish a modern wireless CCTV network, which will link up with a control centre in neighbouring west Suffolk.
Derek Davis, Babergh Council's cabinet member for communities, said: "This project demonstrates Babergh District Council's continued commitment to investing heavily in Sudbury and Hadleigh as part of our vision to regenerate the two towns and support their economic recovery.
"The decision made today provides peace of mind to those residents that we are doing all we can to keep their towns safer."
