Delyn MP David Hanson, Sandy Mewies AM and Cllr Alex Aldridge have met residents from Bolingbroke and Richard Heights, in Flint, to welcome the re-introduction of CCTV to the flats.
Following on from concerns expressed at a recent residents meeting about security in the flats, the local representatives have pushed for action in getting the CCTV system back on stream after being out of use for many years.
David Hanson said:
“Over the last few months we have been working closely with the residents association on Bollingbrook and Richard Heights in order to get the CCTV working again.
“I am pleased that the Council have taken the steps to get the CCTV back running, improving the security for residents.
Sandy Mewies AM added:
“The residents of Flint have a right to feel safe in their homes and the restoration of the recording equipment in these flats is very welcome indeed.”
Cllr Alex Aldridge said:
“CCTV can be used as both a powerful deterrent and a useful tool in identifying the perpetrators of crimes.
“A survey was distributed in the flats, identifying concerns, a meeting was then held and we are now seeing progress on the ground addressing those concerns. I will continue to work with the local community, North Wales Police and David and Sandy to ensure that action is taken in preventing crime here in Flint.”
