Planning permission has been granted to Plymouth City Council who had applied to separate the Civic Centre from the neighbouring Council House and to make renovations on the ground floor of the latter in order to house a new CCTV control room.
The City Council are planning to spend £1 million on the move, renovation and the upgrading of CCTV equipment and electronics, which will significantly improve picture quality. The work will also include the trenching of the area between the Guildhall and the Council House. The city’s CCTV control room used to be situated in Mayflower West car park, but had to be relocated due to the car park’s demolition, which was carried out as a result of structural weaknesses.
The City Council and their contractor, Amey, control and monitor around 300 CCTV cameras, which are located in principal areas in the city centre, with a focus on public safety and traffic flow in key areas such as Marsh Mills, Laira Bridge and Manadon Roundabout.
The relocation and subsequent upgrades are also enthusiastically greeted by Plymouth police force, as the CCTV improvements will aid with many of their future investigations and the identification of criminals.
