Waikawa Beach CCTV update, 22 May 2024

The Waikawa Beach Ratepayers Association has reported back on the CCTV camera idea. See: Report from public meeting about CCTV at Waikawa Beach.

Following the community meeting on 19 May, WBRA has been in contact with the Horowhenua Community Camera Trust (HCCT) and discussed its work and the possibility of collaborating with the Waikawa Beach community. The trust is very keen on such collaboration as it seeks to expand its network of community safety cameras in the region, particularly in the southern part of the region, including Otaki. The trust’s focus area is based on the Horowhenua Police District rather than on Council boundaries hence it extends as far south as Peka Peka.

The trust is able to offer expert advice on appropriate equipment, appropriate locations of cameras, installation and even funding. It seems logical to further collaborate with the trust as far as the decision point as to whether to deploy cameras in Waikawa Beach or not.

Further updates will be provided as more information is obtained.

Below are documents explaining the trust’s structure and the work it undertakes.

Regards to all
