Council Commits to CCTV Grants to Support Businesses and Make the Borough a Safer Place

Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council will soon be encouraging businesses to apply for a new CCTV Grant for their premises, as part of a programme to support economic recovery in the Borough. The new initiative follows an increase in anti-social behaviour and crime in town centres and local commercial areas across the Borough.

Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council will soon be encouraging businesses to apply for a new CCTV Grant for their premises, as part of a programme to support economic recovery in the Borough. The new initiative follows an increase in anti-social behaviour and crime in town centres and local commercial areas across the Borough. The scheme will fund CCTV for local businesses, with access to the recorded footage being made available to the PSNI, if and when required. 

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Billy Webb said,

“The Council works closely with businesses across the Borough and some have highlighted their concerns about localised crime and antisocial behaviour. We want to do what we can to support our local businesses and economy, making our Borough as safe a place as possible for our residents and visitors as well as giving our business owners peace of mind that their premises are protected. Businesses have had a tough time over the past 18 months and by making the Borough a safer place, we hope this will help aid them in the recovery stages following the pandemic.”  

Details on how to apply for the CCTV Grant Programme will be made available at www.antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk soon.
