Gedling Borough Council is investing £17,240 to replace old CCTV with new digital cameras across Plains Road in Mapperly. The CCTV network is being monitored and operated from the council's CCTV room in partnership with Nottinghamshire Police.
Over the years, more and more businesses have been established in Mapperly Plains, including bars, restaurants and takeaways. The cameras will offer reassurance to businesses, workers and visitors against anti-social behaviour.
Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor John Clarke, said; “I’m very pleased that we’ve been able to upgrade these cameras across a huge stretch of one of the busiest parts of the borough.
“We’ve seen great results with our other CCTV cameras elsewhere that we’ve installed or upgraded and I have no doubt these will be just as effective in supporting our communities.
“The council said that one of priorities is to reduce anti-social behaviour, crime and the fear of crime which is why we are investing in CCTV in known hot spots.
“Good quality CCTV like this is a fantastic resource which we use in partnership with local police and help us reassure our residents and business that we are doing everything we can to help keep our borough a fantastic place to live, work and visit.”
