Council’s Street Management Programme provides patrols in the CBD, funds a CCTV network in the Ahuriri, CBD, Taradale, Maraenui and Marewa shopping centres, and supported an outreach programme for the homeless.
The patrols began in 2016 as a temporary measure to help curb the rising issue of begging and rough sleeping in the CBD. Now, we’re investigating whether to change the patrols into ambassador roles, and we plan to bring the CCTV network in-house – it is currently owned and managed by a Trust who have said they are no longer able to provide this service.
Council has set aside $500,000 to replace and expand the CCTV network, which is at the end of its life. With a new system, we could increase the number of cameras and include mobile technology. We would work with Police and incorporate data and community feedback on camera locations.
The $500,000 cost would be loan funded and any increase would happen in 2021/22 (0.06% total rate increase, $1.33 average rates increase per household).
