Residents urged to have their say about CCTV coverage across Bromsgrove district

A RALLYING call has been made to residents to have their say on CCTV coverage across Bromsgrove District.

A consultation is being launched today, asking people for their thoughts on the current locations of cameras in Barnt Green, Hagley, Rubery, Wythall and Alvechurch.

The move has come about following funding from the North Worcestershire Community Safety Partnership through West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion which has been matched by Bromsgrove District Council.

Devices could be upgraded from analogue to digital and new movable cameras could be deployed in areas residents have expressed concerns about.

Judith Willis, the district council’s head of community services, urged people to take this opportunity to help make CCTV more efficient and fit for the future.

“Understanding how CCTV is perceived locally will help us direct resources to where they’re needed most.”

The short survey will be available online from 9am on Monday until June 10 at www.bromsgrove.gov.uk/consultations or paper copies can be requested by calling 01527 64252, extension 3833.

CCTV in Bromsgrove District operates as a shared service between Bromsgrove District, Redditch Borough, and Wyre Forest District councils out of a 24-hour monitoring centre at Redditch Town Hall.
