Comments Off on CCTV cameras installed in Stockport swimming pools causes serious public backlash

Stockport Council’s decision to have CCTV cameras installed in the borough’s swimming pools has been met with hostility, quite a large number of concerned parents expressing their deep concerns regarding this initiative.

According to a report in the local media, the organization in charge of running the council’s leisure centres, Life Leisure, has installed (but not yet switched on) CCTV cameras within the leisure centres located at Grand Central in the town centre, Romiley, Hazel Grove, Cheadle, Marple and Avondale, in Cheadle Heath.

Several parents have expressed their unhappiness to Life Leisure that cameras are in an area where youngsters will swim and that there are no warning signs up to tell people about them.

However, a spokesman for Life Lesure said: “This is now quite commonplace in the leisure industry and follows a recommendation from an external audit to protect and ensure safety for all customers and staff.

“Monitoring is done expressly for the protection of public, and consideration of the placement of cameras will be very sensitive to avoid areas that would reasonably be considered to be inappropriate.”
