Stoke Village now has a fully-functioning CCTV system linked to the city council’s control room after a lengthy campaign by local residents, traders, councillors.
Luke joined traders from Stoke Traders and Residents (STARS) and Labour Councillor Jemima Laing in Stoke Village today to mark the milestone.
“I’ve been supporting the campaign for Stoke Village to get CCTV for many years. I want to praise the dedication and tireless efforts of Stoke Traders and Residents who have fundraised, lobbied and worked with local councillors to deliver CCTV for Stoke Village. I’m pleased that after so many years of effort the CCTV is now installed, working and linked to the city council’s control room. CCTV in Stoke Village will keep people safe.”
Stoke resident and Labour Councillor for Stoke Ward, Jemima Laing said:
“It was a Plymouth Labour manifesto pledge that we would get more CCTV outside the city centre, because we know it makes people feel safer. We’ve worked really closely with Stoke Traders and Residents – they’ve been brilliant – and we’re all really chuffed to see that the CCTV is working in Stoke as of today.”
Fantastic news for Stoke Village – the CCTV has gone live this morning. It was a @PlymouthLabour manifesto commitment to extend CCTV coverage outside the city centre. Well done to @StokeStars for all their hard work in getting CCTV to make Stoke village safer pic.twitter.com/Dgk81Bv1Dp
