Car Park CCTV

Bedford Borough Council installs CCTV cameras in 3 Car Parks

 

Bedford Borough Council is installing a total of 124 new CCTV cameras across three Car Parks to deter and identify more swiftly any misuse of the Car Parks following the renovations made to Allhallows and Lurke Street Car Parks in 2017. The work started on 11th February and is due to be completed by the end of March.

 

Parking in Bedford town centre is simple and convenient as Bedford Borough Council has a variety of Car Parks to offer from multi-storey to open surface Car Parks. CCTV cameras will be installed specifically in Lurke Street (36 cameras), Queen Street (41 cameras) and River Street (47 cameras) Car Parks.

 

The CCTV cameras will be positioned in various areas of the Car Parks from the roof to the ground floors and in stairwells and by the lifts. This will allow the Council to deter any misuse of the Car Parks and identify more quickly any issues that may arise.

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson said: “The safety and cleanliness of our Car Parks are a top priority and we are proud that most of our Car Parks have been awarded a Park Mark. This acknowledges that the Car Park has been vetted by the police and has measures in place that ensure the safety of its users.”

 

He continued: “The Council is frequently looking at ways we can improve our town centre and its facilities. We have free parking schemes across our town centre Car Parks. All Council owned town centre Car Parks have up to 2 hours free parking every Saturday and all day Sunday. Lurke Street and River Street Multi-Storey Car Parks are open 24 hours 7 days a week, with Lurke Street offering free parking from 6pm-6am.”
