Enterprising Bathgate is delighted to announce the delivery of a major new project. For some time businesses have asked for improvements to the operation of CCTV in Bathgate town centre, and we have been working with our partners to find an affordable solution.
There have been many difficulties to overcome in what has been a lengthy process, but at last we can announce details of what has been achieved. The project has involved a successful funding application to the Scottish Government as well as input from West Lothian Council and Police Scotland. Enterprising Bathgate is providing the revenue to facilitate 24/7 monitoring and management of the CCTV cameras in our town centre by Town Centre Activities Ltd., an off-shoot of North Lanarkshire Council, which specialises in CCTV monitoring at their Coatbridge facility.
The main outcomes resulting from the successful conclusion of this project:
- all 14 CCTV cameras have been upgraded to provide pan, tilt and zoom facilities
- images from all cameras will be viewed by Town Centre Activities using the latest technology
- the cameras will be monitored 24/7 by TCA staff
- contract will be implemented from April 2017
