WIW Actions & Achievements
August 22, 2018
Where the money goes but what will be next on the “wish list”?
Every business on the industrial estates within the WIW area has contributed to the success of Witham Industrial Watch. Ten years or more ago the original “wish list” of the small team of enthusiasts who established WIW was to have:
A safer and cleaner place for companies and their workforce.
Develop a reputation as a good place for business thus encouraging existing businesses to stay on the estates and attracting new businesses and employment opportunities to the town.
Today, the estates are monitored, criminal activity has been reduced and we encourage every incident to be reported; the cctv and ANPR are invaluable. The installation of 8 defibrillators with training sessions for over 100 people is a huge asset to the area.
82 cctv cameras on the estates
Police monitored ANPR
Liaison system with Parking Partnership
Special gritting programme in winter
Training courses on CPR and the use of defibrillators
Constant reporting and monitoring of incidents
Ability to lobby for specific points e.g. night lighting
Reassurance that WIW is a safer area
On site managers working with businesses
