TOWN councils on Anglesey looking to take over their own town’s CCTV cameras are now waiting to hear whether they will receive grant funding.
Representatives from Amlwch, Beaumaris, Holyhead, Llangefni and Menai Bridge town and community councils have sent letters to the Isle of Anglesey Charitable Trust with applications for funding to help finance the potential CCTV takeover.
The councils have taken responsibility of the cameras from Anglesey County Council for a three month period lasting until mid-September.
Beaumaris town clerk, Trevor Ashenden said: “CCTV systems are considered vital to the island.
"The CCTV system is important to the wellbeing of the community.
“Basically we’ve agreed we can’t afford it unless we can get grant funding, the five towns have agreed that.”
Holyhead town clerk, Cliff Everett said: “We’ve all written to the county council for help from the charitable trust because there are millions of pounds sitting there for benefit of the people of Anglesey.”
