Saved: Future of Daventry’s CCTV secured

Share this article

CCTV in Daventry town centre has been saved after nine months of uncertainty – but the decision rested on a single casting vote.

On Monday night, Daventry Town Council voted to take over responsibility for the town’s cameras, and to then out-source the service.

The meeting was told that unless the town council voted to adopt the service Daventry District Council – which currently owns and pays for the cameras – would start to dismantle it from April.
