Public feedback wanted on new CCTV cameras for Great Yarmouth
Great Yarmouth Borough Council is working with Norfolk Constabulary to install nine new CCTV cameras in Great Yarmouth and wants the public's views on proposed locations.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Norfolk Constabulary are encouraging residents to share their views on the proposed locations of nine new CCTV cameras in Great Yarmouth.
The potential sites are in Deneside, York Road, King Street/St Peter's Road, Blackfriars, Havelock Road, Victoria Road, Wellington Road, Kimberley Terrace/Camperdown and Nelson Road Central.
The Council is keen to hear from residents, businesses, community groups and sports clubs on what impact the cameras may have. Questionnaires have been delivered to all properties near to the proposed camera sites, with an online version also available.
The map showing where the current CCTV cameras are placed, and the proposed locations for the new ones, can be viewed on the council's website.
Completed questionnaires can also be emailed to email@example.com or returned to Communications Team, Great Yarmouth Borough Council, Town Hall, Hall Plain, Great Yarmouth, NR30 2QF.
The questionnaire takes about five minutes to complete and will help inform the council's decision. The consultation has a closing date for responses of Monday, December 5, 2022.
Leader of Great Yarmouth Borough Council, Councillor Carl Smith, said: "We are really pleased that Safer Streets Funding has given us and our partners further funding for additional CCTV and street lighting in Great Yarmouth.
"Please take a few minutes to respond to the survey as your feedback will help us make our decision on these important proposals."
The new CCTV cameras, paid for by the Government's Safer Streets Fund and Great Yarmouth Borough Council, will be monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by Community Safety (Great Yarmouth) Ltd which currently monitors other CCTV in the borough.
