"CCTV – does Nairn want more CCTV? 40 BID members say YES. What do residents think? And who pays? Common Good?"

 Another interesting post appears on the Nairn River Community Council site:

"Cllr Saggers has given Nairn’s two community councils less than 2 weeks to respond with ‘community views’. This is an unfeasibly short window for us to consult the public, and report back, so we will be asking for more time."   

We find the results of the survey of BID members very interesting too. Only 1 in 10 of their members replied - that is to say 40 responses. Here at the Gurn we find one of the questions amusing. 

18  BID folk think there should  be cameras at the Train Station. There are probably already more cameras than the 40 respondents to this survey - 10 in the car park area alone? Win a year's free subscription to the Gurn - go and count all the cameras at the railway station. 

We remember too, a few years ago, when there was a vicious attack on a town centre resident in his home. What helped to catch the culprit was a private camera on the side of a local business. So perhaps BID and Highland Council should also map the private cameras in the town too? 

Anyway, more on the NRCC site here.
