Broxtowe Borough Council Surveillance Camera System Consideration for Upgraded and Continued Use of Surveillance Camera Systems

Broxtowe Borough Council believe there is still a significant pressing need with legitimate aims to justify upgrading surveillance cameras systems, some of which form a part of the Crime Commissioners safer streets initiative and others reflect continued use of existing surveillance camera systems throughout the borough of Broxtowe. Particularly in its public car parks, parks and recreation grounds, Community areas, public buildings, housing sites and public protection areas. The Council is proposing to upgrade surveillance camera systems and continue with surveillance use in the above areas of concern and surrounding areas.

If you wish to comment on or have any concerns to the proposals outlined in the enclosed document(.pdf)(107KB)(Opens in a New Window), we would be pleased to hear from you by 2pm on Tuesday 28th February 2023 – please quote “Justification for upgraded and continued camera use consultation” on any correspondence.  Otherwise, the Council will assume that you have no comments or concerns at this stage.

Should you require further information or clarification on any points arising from this proposal please contact the Council’s Camera Surveillance Manager on 0115 917 3680 during normal office hours or email: cctv@broxtowe.gov.uk

Public Spaces and Protection Orders

The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 introduced several new tools and powers for use by councils and their partners to address anti-social behaviour (ASB) in their local areas. Public Space Protection Orders can be introduced in a specific public area where the local authority is satisfied on reasonable grounds that certain conditions have been met:

  • Activities that have taken place have had a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality, or it is likely that activities will take place and that they will have a detrimental effect

  • The effect or likely effect of these activities:

  • Is, or is likely to be, persistent or continuing in nature

  • Is, or is likely to be, unreasonable.

  • Justifies the restrictions being imposed.

Orders can be made for a maximum duration of up to three years, after which they may be extended if certain criteria under section 60 of the Act are met. This includes that an extension is necessary to prevent activity recurring, or there has been an increase in frequency or seriousness of the activity. Extensions can be repeated, with each lasting for a maximum of three years. Broxtowe Borough Council has ten PSPOs which were approved in 2020 on which we are now consulting to inform members of the stakeholder and public opinion of their renewal for a further 3 years.

The Borough Council are proposing that all current PSPOs are renewed without change except the Beeston Town Centre Alcohol Control PSPO for which an extension to include Chilwell Road is proposed on the separate map.
