Henley CCTV contract set to be extended

CCTV cameras in Henley are likely to continue to be part-funded by the town council.

Councillors are expected to agree to extend the contract with South Oxfordshire District Council until March 31 next year with an option to extend the contract for another year.

Under the deal, the town council would contribute about £14,700 towards the cost of 20 cameras in the town centre. It has also budgeted £8,100 to operate its own three cameras in Mill Meadows.

A report presented to the council’s town and community committee showed there were 162 incidents monitored by CCTV in Henley in the three months from July to September last year compared with 150 in the previous quarter.

The total was the second-highest in South Oxfordshire behind Didcot with 163, Wallingford (91) and Thame (63).
