CCTV cameras in Warwick district look set to undergo a £900,000 upgrade.
Warwick District Council’s executive is expected to approve plans which will see the current 190 cameras – which were fitted in 2013 – replaced with upgraded mobile versions which councillors say will cost less to maintain as they use wifi or 4G coverage to operate.
Work would begin later this month and would be completed by September.
The council says it would save £300,000 over the next five years due to a reduction in the maintenance contract.
But an extra £170,000 of work could take place if the council moves from its current headquarters at Riverside House to a new purpose built home at Covent Garden car park.
The work to relocate the CCTV system would include building a new control room, installing new cameras throughout, relocating hardware and decommissioning the existing control room.
