CCTV consultation results

We're commited to reducing crime and keeping residents safe. To do this, we're proposing to install CCTV systems on our housing estates.

Residents have told us that they want to have a say in whether CCTV is installed in and around their estates and we are consulting with a number of estates on this.

The following reports are the results of consultations which have already taken place.

You can find out more about CCTV in H&F on the CCTV page.

Secure bike storage on our estates consultation results

  • Barclay Close - bike storage consultation report

    A number of residents on Barclay Close have asked the council to provide secure bike storage. The bike storage is designed for adult bikes (children’s bikes will need to be kept inside your home). There will be no charge for the installation of the bike storage and no charge to use them. We only charge for a replacement key if you lose yours.

    In July 2019 we carried out a consultation with residents of Barclay close to confirm that there is support for this proposal.

    Approach

    We posted out consultation surveys to all the residents at Barclay close. 105 properties were surveyed.

    Consultation results

    In total, 7 survey responses were received. This represents a response rate of 6.6%. This is a low response rate compared to the average for this type of survey.

    All of the 7 respondents supported the proposal for bike storage, and 3 out of the 6 respondents have bikes.  Residents gave the following comments for their support:

    • It is a good idea
    • I am not a bike rider but approve of storage
    • Please ensure some go in front of block 1-20, as previous ones were installed in front of all other blocks.
    • The bike storage is a really nice idea
