Gedling Borough Council has submitted plans for a new CCTV camera which will be installed in an anti-social ‘hotspot’ in Arnold.
Gedling Borough Council has submitted a planning application for the new CCTV camera that will go on a 10ft pole at the junction of Rolleston Drive and Brookfield Road, near the Major Oak pub.
The new camera is being installed to help cut down on problems in this ‘hot-spot’ area following complaints about anti-social behaviour.
A camera was installed last October on Smithy Crescent in the town and has helped reduce crime substantially in the area.
Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor John Clarke said ““There have been a number of incidents of anti-social behaviour in the area and we have been working closely with Nottinghamshire Police to find solutions. We have also listened to residents’ concerns and are proposing that CCTV is installed in the hot spot area.
“We have seen some very good results from the camera installed on Smithy Crescent, Arnold, which has significantly reduced the number of incidents there and residents have given us some very positive feedback. The camera will be installed as soon as possible, subject to planning permission being granted.”
