A Safer Mainstreet

Last updated March 2022

The business association committed to the installation and monitoring of CCTV security cameras in Avondale in its 2020/21 business plan.  

Following a feasibility phase, which included consultation across NZ Police, the Whau Local Board, Auckland Transport and Council, in January 2022, the business association engaged the services of Safer Cities, an independent CCTV network designer, to create a best-practice design for our town centre.


The estimated cost of this complete project was $120k, which stretched beyond our budget of $70k.  However, it was suggested that business associations seldom begin with the full coverage and so a stripped back first phase was agreed upon.

The first phase of that design was then quoted by installer, ICE Security, and the quote accepted by the board early March. 

The equipment has now been ordered in the first step of rolling this project out over the next few months.

We thank business owners for their patience in awaiting the arrival of this project and trust we can look forward to your assistance when managing the finer details of permission and building access.

We trust this project will aid in providing a safer town centre for our business owners, residents and shoppers.
