CCTV Cameras installed at Leeds troublespot

CCTV cameras are to be installed at a Leeds shopping parade at a cost of £27,500.

The area, which has been labelled a ‘hotspot’ for anti social behaviour, is to be given the cameras as councils look to rid the small parade of intimidating gangs and troublemakers.

It is thought that the area, located on the Farsley Farfield estate, had also started to decline because potential investors were being put off from opening new stores and were worried about being associated with the area.

Leeds City Council’s outer west Leeds area committee is now looking to change this mentality as it pledges £15,000 to revamp the area with added grants set to be given for the next five years. This money will go towards purchasing new CCTV cameras as well as the upkeep.

It is expected that the cameras will be installed within the next few months and will also be closely monitored by staff in a control room.

A report that was given to the Well-Being Fund said: “The Farfield Avenue area with its small parade of shops has been the hotspot anti-social behaviour location in Farsley in recent years.”

“The cameras will be installed to have good coverage of the parade of shops. The shops are an important local resource. However, they can be difficult to let due to anti-social behaviour problems in the area”.

The report also read: “CCTV will encourage the vitality of this parade of shops as well as reduce incidences of anti social behaviour.”
