CCTV in Springfield Park - Part III

I've been checking up on progress regarding the installation of CCTV in Springfield Park - the officer update this evening has the frustrating news that the owners of Northgate House are only likely to sign the agreement with the Council to allow their property to be used to relay signals from the camera to the CCTV control room in early December. So now officers "anticipate having the cameras up and running in early January 2007 at the latest."

This legal delay is incredibly frustrating, particularly of course for residents around the park itself. Together with ward councillors Andy Scott and David Lyonette, I will be doing everything I can to ensure that the installation date is brought forward.

Hi Nick

Should'nt the council of secured the relay positioning before installing the posts in the park? Seems a bit backside first and what about the alledged privacy invasion of some of the residents?

Seems ill thought out like so many of DBC's plans of late.
