CCTV system in Penzance, Cornwall, to be funded by rise in council tax

Comments Off on CCTV system in Penzance, Cornwall, to be funded by rise in council tax

The Cornish town of Penzance is set to overhaul its existing CCTV system, but funding for the upgrade will be obtained by charging residents an extra 5 per cent a year in council tax in 2014-15, a news report in the local media has revealed.

Upgrading the town’s existing CCTV system is likely to cost around £20,000, on top of £10,000 budgeted annually for CCTV monitoring.

Replacing the CCTV was opposed by several councillors, since they claimed that originally the cost was to have been shared by bodies including the police and the business community.

Nevertheless, local authorities claimed that this was a “a worst-case scenario”, and added that there might be opportunities in the future for the business community to extend the CCTV system as part of the Business Improvement District process.
