Upgrade to CCTV Cameras and Improved Security Monitoring

Segensworth Business Forum is delighted to announce a major additional upgrade to the CCTV system installed throughout the Estates.

The work has been undertaken by Croma Security Solutions Group (CSS) who have designed and implemented the new System. The upgrade includes the introduction of state of the art Bosch Security Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras at key junctions on the Estates, two high level anti-vandal Bosch Security dome cameras providing coverage of the A27 Underpass, plus additional camera coverage of Concorde Way.

The original Bosch Security MIC PTZ cameras continue to operate and data is recorded via Bosch Security Digital Video Recorders.

Oakpark Security Systems Limited continues to provide the mobile security patrols across the Segensworth Estates; but a further key development is the timed remote monitoring of the live CCTV images from the main control room at Oakpark Security Systems. The control room is based in Colchester, Essex.    

These improved security measures will continue to cut down on unsocial activity, assist in reducing potential criminal activity and prove a valuable aid for capturing the perpetrators of any crimes committed on the Estates.  All images are available to the local Police.

Claire Nutbrown, Director and Chair of the SBF Security Project Team, is delighted with these improved security measures saying:

“Segensworth Businesses frequently tell us that Security remains a key concern within the Estates.  The new CCTV coverage and associated monitoring service, combined with the effective mobile patrols, will act as part of our integrated deterrent aimed at discouraging crime and preventing Segensworth being seen as a ‘soft target’.  We intend to maintain our position of having one of the lowest crime rates for any Industrial Estate in the region”.

Estate Maps Updated

The SBF sponsored maps at the entrance to the estates have now been updated to include details of the underpass, footpaths and bus stops. We are also investigating placing copies at strategic points throughout the estates.   

The maps provide a useful guide for walkers and cyclists as well as visitors to the estates. Individual copies can be downloaded by clicking on the link below.

Segensworth Accessibility Improvements Completed

A partnership scheme between Hampshire County Council and the Segensworth Business Forum which improves accessibility for pedestrian cyclists and bus users in the Segensworth Business areas has recently been completed.


The improvements have been jointly funded by the Segensworth Business Forum and the County Council, and include new footways in place of grass verges on Barnes Wallis Road and Brunel Way with a new pedestrian link from Barnes Wallis Road via Jacaranda Close to Segensworth Road which provides a valuable link to the existing bus stops near the site of the Office of National Statistics. 


The scheme also includes improvements to form a new pedestrian and cycle route between the Segensworth East and West areas, which avoids the busy Segensworth roundabout.  The route links Little Park Farm Road in Segensworth West with Brunel Way in Segensworth East, and utilises the existing underpass under the M27/A27 link road to provide a pleasant walking and cycling route on a good surface with lighting.  As part of a separate project the Business Forum are providing cctv monitoring on parts of the route to maintain security for users and businesses. 


The County Council has recently approved the installation of a new Toucan crossing on the A27 Southampton Road near the A3051 Botley Road roundabout, together with signed routes to Swanwick railway station and the Segensworth business areas which will improve pedestrian and cycle access between the these areas, the local public transport facilities and the residential areas in Park Gate, and Locks Heath.  Work on this is expected to start in March 2013, and once completed will contribute towards improved accessibility in the area.


SBF Chairman, Mark Sutton is delighted that the scheme is now complete. “Businesses identified improved access as one of the key issues in Segensworth. This scheme is part of our long term and continued objectives to address these requirements.  We will continue to identify where we can improve access as well as helping to promote greener travel options throughout the estates.”



Councillor Mel Kendal, Executive Member for Environment and Transport at Hampshire County Council, said: "The construction of these footpaths and pedestrian and cycle links shows how the public and private sector can work together for the benefit of the community.  Once complete, walking and cycling in the area will be easier and safer and offer a viable alternative to driving for shorter, local journeys.  I’d like to congratulate the Segensworth Business Forum on their recent success as a Business Improvement District for a second term, and I look forward to working with them on other projects in the future."


The improvements in the Segensworth Business areas have cost £265,000, with a substantial contribution of being made by the Segensworth business forum. 


The scheme was carried out by contractors Graham Moyse Ltd and Hope and Clay Construction Ltd.
