You said, we did!

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) has been installed in three high rise blocks in Bedford town centre as part of a range of activities following feedback from residents living in the area.

Richbell Court, Chandos Court and Boswell Court have had CCTV installed by us at a cost of £70,000 following a community consultation with people living in the flats.

A number of other initiatives designed to improve the quality of life for local people has also been carried out, including various anti-social behaviour activities, litter picks and community safety events.

Jim Playle, Community Development Officer, said: “Improved CCTV was the highest ranking issue residents told us about in the consultation and we made it our priority aim to install it.

“The CCTV will give us higher quality imagery and we now have far more cameras installed in a wider number of communal areas, such as stairways, lifts and laundry rooms, helping to make the blocks a much safer place for our tenants to live, and is part of a wider project we are carrying out in this area to help improve life for residents.”

An update on improvements to the area features in the latest edition of our customer magazine Talk.
