Nottingham City Council have adjusted the number of new CCTV masts they are proposing to erect in the Forest Fields area.

Three new masts are now proposed for Forest Fields, which would host cameras on rotation and surveil from junctions at Burford and Berridge Roads, Leslie and Berridge Road, and Gladstone Street and Foxhall Road. This is an amendment from the original proposal, which advocated five new masts in Forest Fields. The new proposal still includes a new mast for New Basford.

The reduction in masts was agreed at a meeting between the Area 4 management team, local councillors and police.

In this meeting it was also decided that the council will now consult all the residents of Forest Fields. Letters will be sent to homes within the boundary of Noel St., Sherwood Rise, Gregory Boulevard and Gladstone Street, detailing the proposal and how to respond to it. This is due to happen in the next three weeks.

The police in conjunction with the local authority are also intending to organise a public meeting on the issue of CCTV in the area, although they haven't found a venue yet.
