CCTV systems in Fakenham, Sheringham and North Walsham might get a new lease on life
Comments Off on CCTV systems in Fakenham, Sheringham and North Walsham might get a new lease on life
Very ambitious plans to save the CCTV systems in Fakenham, Sheringham and North Walsham have been forwarded by their respective councils, although residents may have to incur a council tax if these plans go through, a news report in the local media has revealed.
Back in 2013, North Norfolk District Council’s cabinet has voted to scrap all its CCTV cameras in order to be able to save £200,000 per year, with the switch-off date being set for March.
However, in bid to keep their system running, the three town councils have now written to NNDC asking for its CCTV hardware to be handed to a private contractor, with the local authorities being ready to assume responsibility for maintenance and operation costs.
Nevertheless, they did ask the district council to put up £90,000 to cover costs of reconfiguring the CCTV system, which would be £5,000 less than the costs associated to the system’s decommissioning process.
Furthermore, should the overall maintenance costs exceed the town councils’ budgets, residents may be asked if they are prepared to pay an increase in council tax to keep security cameras.
