A new CCTV camera has been installed in Carlton Square, in a bid to deter offenders and help locals feel safer in their own neighbourhood.

The £15,000 camera has been installed by Gedling Borough Council to monitor the recently redeveloped Carlton Square car park and surrounding area.

The camera has been funded by the Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner.

The camera, which has been fitted at the top of a 10-metre column to improve its coverage, has been installed as part of the council’s commitment to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and to invest in new and existing CCTV in priority hot spots. 

The camera provides high quality images which can help assist the Police investigating criminal activities taking place in or around the area.

Carlton Square car park reopened in December 2021 following £450,000 of improvement works as part of a wider regeneration programme for Carlton. The works contribute towards one of the council’s main priorities to revitalise its town centres and create a more vibrant economy.

Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor John Clarke MBE said: “We’ve invested in this new car park and electric vehicle charging facilities at Carlton Square and we want this area to be a place residents and businesses feel safe and secure. Thanks to this new CCTV camera, we’re able to do that and will be working closely with the Police and local businesses to reduce issues of anti-social behaviour.

“I’d like to thank the Police for jointly funding this new equipment and for their continued support working alongside our Neighbourhood Wardens and Public Protection team across our borough.”

Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Caroline Henry said: “I am delighted to have funded this CCTV camera in Carlton Square as part of our Community Safety Partnership.

“I hope the installation of this camera will offer reassurance to car park users, retail business, shoppers in the area, residents of Walton Court as well as supporting the existing camera in the Carlton Square area.  

She added: “We want criminals in the area to know, we have got our eye on you.”

  1. More camera’s in Arnold please to keep tourists safe and secure. Lots of security in London and Arnold is our capital in Gedling so we should do the same.

  2. I quote..” Carlton Square car park reopened in December 2021 following £450,000 of improvement works as part of a wider regeneration programme for Carlton.” Recently redeveloped Carlton Square? All youve bloody done is replace a car park for a p**s poor designed one! And in your eyes this constitutes re developement? Where’s the rest of the £450k then eh ? Your insulting people with your blind ignorance and total nepotism towards Arnold. Perhaps it could go some way to filling the void under Arnold lads nose such is the biased diatribe aimed at Carlton that spews forth from it.
