Following Councillor Ian Tait’s anti-social behaviour meeting, three local Fraserburgh and District councillors, - Ian Tait, Michael Watt and Brian Topping - met on Monday, March 25, to look at ways to improve security and safety in Fraserburgh.
With two Grampian Police officers in attendance, a number of residents’ concerns were addressed and raised, the police encouraging those in attendance to report anti-social behaviour issues to be dealt with to them.
“The meeting lasted for an hour and the one very positive suggestion by a Broadsea resident was to install a web cam at the shore as a safety feature. There are more surfers using Broadsea shore as it offers some real challenges and of course there is more risk when conditions are dangerous,” Cllr Watt told the Fraserburgh Herald, commenting that a webcam could be used to alert emergency services if a surfer or shore user found themselves in any difficulty.
The councillors have taken on the task of investigating how to proceed with a plethora of new ideas to make this part of Fraserburgh safer and better for residents and visitors.
Cllr Watt said that the webcam idea will be discussed again at their next meeting, after investigating the cost of implementing the measure.
