Project Description

BID 2 Projects – Accessibility and Security

Theme 3: Accessibility and Security.

Our consultation proved that the recently installed CCTV is welcomed by businesses; 82% of respondents said that it is essential to maintain the CCTV and where necessary, expand the number of cameras. We will work with St Ives Town Council to ensure that the CCTV works for the town and its business community.

We will continue with our programme of maintaining and where needed, expanding pedestrian signs and will of course, consult with you on the designs and locations of any new signs. We will listen to our levy payers and respond accordingly to ensure that signs enhance rather than detract from the visitor experience.

CCTV to be maintained and where needed, extended. BID will work closely with the Town Council and relevant authorities to look at funding options.
