Flintshire CCTV cameras could be monitored in Wrexham

Two local authorities have been working together to see whether the service in Flintshire could be provided from Wrexham's control room.

Flintshire's control room is located in part of County Hall in Mold, which has been earmarked for demolition.

The move would save both councils a combined total of £47,000 per year, which is to be split with £28,000 going to Wrexham and £19,000 to Flintshire.

The shared service would be hosted and managed by Wrexham council, and a staff rota would be drawn up so that the two sets of cameras have two people monitoring them at all times.

Wrexham currently has 87 cameras compared to 119 in Flintshire, with spending on CCTV standing at £381,000 and £255,000 a year respectively.

However, Wrexham Council is facing a deficit of £79,000 in its budget, with the majority of the money used to cover staffing costs.
