North Notts BID rolls out CCTV throughout the North Notts industrial

Bonus for North Notts businesses as new CCTV network increases protection

BUSINESSES based in the North Notts BID area can sleep a little easier after a new CCTV network was installed across industrial premises in Retford and Worksop.

Cameras with automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) are now in operation on the Dukeries Industrial Estate in Worksop and the Randall Park Way and Hallcroft industrial estates in Retford.

The network – installed by CCTV specialist S80 View – will increase security across the estates, logging details and registrations and identifying unauthorised vehicles though high-quality footage.

Sally Gillborn, chief executive of North Notts BID, said: “We’re very happy to see the CCTV fully operational across these three sites.  Security is a key concern for BID members, and it is one of our focuses as we look to ensure North Nottinghamshire is seen as a safe place to work, live and visit. 

“This project is the latest in a number of schemes we are working on alongside local businesses, as we look to make improvements across the area and deliver great results for the region.”

The camera network is the latest initiative introduced by the BID, with coverage of Harworth and Tuxford to follow shortly. The BID has also recently launched free Wi-Fi across town centres in Worksop, Retford, Harworth and Tuxford, as well as introducing its maintenance support services to keep the area well maintained and tidy.

Jo White, Chair of Board at S80 View said: “This technology will provide added security for the premises covered by the network, giving owners and tenants peace of mind that their sites are being well looked after, even when they aren’t around. Working collaboratively with the BID has been crucial in delivering a network that will reduce crime and protect businesses in the area.”
