Hi-Tech CCTV - £14,000
The Conservative Group believe the Council needs to do more to tackle crime across the borough. To keep our street safe 5 Hi-Tech CCTV cameras will be installed in crime Hotpots across the Borough.
To honour the budget proposal from 2020/21 residents will be encouraged to become a Special Constable and this is supported via the Council Tax reduction scheme.
Reversing the proposal to dim streetlights
The Cabinet Budget Report has the proposal to dim the streetlights across the Borough after midnight to save £20,000. The Conservative Group believe streetlights should not be dimmed at night because street lighting helps accident prevention as well as reduces crime levels in areas.
A detailed saving proposal is detailed in this amendment to keep the streetlights on. the Conservative Group propose cutting the excessive Labour Councillor allowances. In May, the Conservative Group tabled an amendment to stop an increase in Labour allowances which currently cost the taxpayers of Bury thousands.
Street lighting is vitally important and helps residents feel safe at night. I firmly believe that dimming streetlights will make residents feel unsafe and could potentially encourage anti-social behaviour.
