Warrnambool City Council has received a grant of $133,967 to install two CCTV cameras and additional lighting at Artillery Crescent/Cannon Hill.

The funding was announced this week by member for Western Victoria Gayle Tierney

The CCTV cameras and lighting in Warrnambool’s War Memorial precinct to address vandalism and hoon behaviour and improve perceptions of safety.

The Public Safety Infrastructure Fund grants program aims to build community safety and confidence through the development of public safety and security infrastructure.

 “The Artillery Crescent project will combat unwanted and antisocial behaviour and give residents the confidence to engage and enjoy their community,” Ms Tierney said.

“These improvements will also help boost the local economy by making the space a more desirable and enticing place to visit.

“The Andrews Labor Government is proud to be partnering with Warrnambool City Council to help increase public safety in Warrnambool.”

Warrnambool Mayor Cr Tony Herbert thanked the Victorian Government for the funding and said the project would be of great benefit to Warrnambool.

“The cameras will discourage hoon drivers and create a safer environment for other motorists and people walking around the precinct including those visiting the RSL and the war memorials.

“There will also be new lighting installed at Cannon Hill and along the walking path from Cannon Hill to Pertobe Road.

“Cannon Hill is a special place in Warrnambool, very popular with residents and visitors, and this project will enhance the amenity of the area and help create a safer environment for everyone.

“The project will build on the notion of people ‘feeling safe’ in their city which was one of the key measures in the study by global research company Ipsos which found that Warrnambool was the most liveable city in Australia.”
