CCTV

We operate a CCTV system extending across Taunton and Wellington town centres and of our own car parks. These cameras are centrally controlled and monitored by Sedgemoor District Council. Active monitoring takes place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

There are also several cameras in North and East Taunton.

The CCTV operators work closely with the Police and business community.

If you have been involved in an incident and would like to seek CCTV footage, please contact the CCTV control room at Sedgemoor District Council on telephone 0300 303 7800 or email customer.services@sedgemoor.gov.uk.

If the incident is urgent out of hours please call 0800 917 6520 or in an emergency that requires the Police, phone 999.

You can also access more information from Sedgemoor District Council.
