Fylde Council to upgrade CCTV 'to provide reassurance'

Fylde Council is set to become the latest local authority to upgrade its CCTV systems.

A number of councils across the UK have responded to budget cuts by upgrading their security devices in order to save money in the long term.

Fylde Council's cabinet is set to give the go-ahead to an £80,000 scheme, which will replace 19 cameras that are believed to be out of date.

Councillor Cheryl Little, portfolio holder for social wellbeing, told the Blackpool Gazette: "It's about reassurance.

"I am happy that we can facilitate it.

"Most of the cameras are more than ten years old."

She explained that the new cameras will streamline operations at the council, as they use digital and Wi-Fi technology to allow much more efficient monitoring.

Ms Little explained that the new CCTV systems will provide local residents and firms with the peace of mind that they need to get on with their lives.
