Ingoldmells is set to upgrade its CCTV network in a bid to crackdown on crime and antisocial behaviour. It will also introduce a new app designed to aid in crime prevention. Meanwhile, signages will be installed in The Sea Walk along with improved lighting.
The move follows the successful joint application by the Police and Crime Commissioner Marc Jones, Lincolnshire Police and East Lindsey District Council for government funding.
A spokesperson for East Lindsey District Council said: “Ingoldmells was identified as a key area that fit the criteria for the second round of the Safer Streets fund which focuses on reducing neighbourhood crime.
“The funding will enable increased surveillance of the area through ANPR and CCTV, as well as increase awareness about crime prevention advice and guidance and improve the awareness of the Caravan Watch scheme.”
Mr. Marc Jones added: "It is fantastic news that we have been able to secure yet another round of funding to improve the safety of our communities,"
"This project will make a very real difference and, along with the new training centre in Skegness, represents significant investment in the East Coast.
"Not only will it keep our residents safe it will allow visitors to feel and be safe, enhancing our tourism industry and supporting the coast in its economic recovery post Covid."
