Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils are considering a proposal to merge, creating a new District Council covering the whole of South Warwickshire (the areas currently covered by Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils).
The public consultation on the plans to create a South Warwickshire Council starts this week on Monday 6 September and runs until Sunday 24 October.
The consultation document and online questionnaire can be viewed and completed at: www.southwarwickshire.org.uk
The Community Safety service at Stratford-on-Avon District Council is proposing to install a public space CCTV camera on Valley Road, Earlswood. The purpose of this camera is to detect and prevent crime and provide community reassurance. The CCTV camera is proposed to be mounted to a new CCTV column on Valley Road in the layby.
The column would be 10 metres high to enable the camera to see the top of the causeway and lakes. The CCTV camera would be Pan/Tilt/Zoom enabled and will be recording 24 hours per day and monitored by the British Standard 7958 accredited CCTV Department at Stratford-on-Avon District Council. The team have direct contact with Warwickshire Police Control room and police officers on the ground.
Below is a map showing where the proposed camera would be installed subject to planning permission. As a part of the consultation process prior to an application for planning permission, it is important that we listen to the views of residents and businesses within the immediate locality of the intended camera site.
