Type of Comment
Further to previous correspondence on this application the applicant has now submitted a crime prevention statement. This now makes the application more fit for purpose and the fencing and gating proposed are more secure. The applicant has more understanding of the likely issues and has also mentioned the use of CCTV on the site. This has not been mentioned previously and so before commenting more fully further information is required on that aspect of the statement. I would like some more information in the form of a site plan showing the locations of the CCTV cameras, their arcs of coverage and whether the images are being monitored. The applicant needs to be aware that currently the site is remote, under no surveillance and a person with criminal intent and suitably equipped may well be able to breach the security proposed. A monitored CCTV system to ensure a response to any unauthorised activity will reduce the likelihood of a successful attack.
