Weston Sub Edge CCTV launch presentation


Article written by Cotswold District Council Jan 2024

Cameras have been installed throughout Weston Sub-Edge with the help of the Cotswold Community Safety Partnership to deter crime and reassure residents.

After a series of car thefts and break-ins, residents were feeling worried about their safety and brought their concerns to the Parish Council.

Cotswold District Council, as part of the Cotswold Community Safety Partnership, allocated the Parish Council £8,300 to bring their CCTV proposal to life using funding from the Home Office’s Safer Streets Fund which is awarded through Gloucestershire’s Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Cllr Lisa Spivey, Cabinet Member for Communities and Public Safety, said, “I’m so pleased that the District Council have been able to make this happen through the Safer Streets Fund. It is definitely a worthwhile project that will help residents feel safe in their village.

“The Safer Streets Fund is so important to enable us to support our residents and ensure our communities feel safe. Thank you to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for securing this funding, it really will make a huge difference to funding projects across our district!”

Weston Sub-Edge Parish Council put together the proposal for CCTV throughout the village to help reassure residents and deter crime.

The CCTV was installed at the end of last year and is now up and running smoothly. Weston Sub-Edge now has multiple high definition CCTV cameras dotted around the village along with ANPR technology. If any crimes are caught on the cameras, they will be reported to the Police to deal with appropriately. A launch event was held for the village on 18 January 2024.
