CCTV could cost Etwall Parish Council large sum

A PARISH council is considering spending more than £2,000 on new CCTV security.

Etwall Parish Council discussed the plans at its monthly meeting this week.

A key discussion point was the aim of deterring crime around the village hall.

The Frank Wickham Hall, in Portland Street, was targeted earlier this year when an expensive mower used by the bowls club was stolen from a shed behind the building.

This has prompted the council to consider increasing the number of CCTV cameras around the building from one to four, at a potential cost of £2,280.

The one camera currently in use is thought to be insufficient due to the small area it covers.

The plan has not yet been approved, as the council will explore further quotes in an effort to reduce costs.

    I was not in attendance at the last meeting but I have been involved with this. This story seems to suggest that Etwall Parish Council is considering spending its own allocated funds on the whole project. It is in fact Etwall's Neighbourhood Watch Group who be generously footing the majority of the bill (around £2000) so I would suggest your headline "CCTV could cost Etwall Parish Council large sum" is incorrect.
