Funds for CCTV cameras are approved
The North West (Outer) Area Committee agreed this week to provide the money to cover part of the cost of monitoring and maintaining cameras in the main shopping areas of both towns.
The CCTV surveillance on Kirkgate, Manor Square, Boroughgate, Cross Green and Market Street will receive £11,863, while £6,442 will go towards the running of Yeadon High Street’s three cameras.
Committee member Councillor Ryk Downes (Lib Dem, Otley & Yeadon) said: “By agreeing to continue to provide funding for this scheme, we can ensure that people using the high streets feel safe and secure."
