Businesses at the Coliseum Leisure Park, in Ellesmere Port, are to benefit from a new radio link system designed to reduce business crime.

The Coliseum, which is managed by Savills UK, has joined the Ellesmere Port Against Business Crime partnership, which works with local businesses, the council’s CCTV control room, Police and various other partners to help reduce crime, antisocial behaviour and other issues affecting the local business community.

The radio network, which links up all businesses with each other, will allow any problems to be effectively reported to CCTV and the Cheshire Police and shared with neighbouring businesses.

Savills Area Operations Manager Karl Rigby, said: “The Coliseum is really pleased to have joined Ellesmere Port Against Business Crime and I’m sure the new radio link will make a big difference to the businesses here. 

“We are sending a clear message that crimes including Theft and Anti-Social Behaviour will not be tolerated and all of our businesses will work together with our new partners to reduce this type of activity going forward.”

Local member, Councillor Lynn Clare, said:: “Our ‘Against Business Crime’ initiative already operates within several areas of the borough including Chester, Ellesmere Port town centre, McArthur Glen Cheshire Oaks Retail Park, Chester Retail Park, Northwich town centre and now the Coliseum Leisure Park.

“The radio network really does improve communication between businesses and enforcement officers and the results are proven by the reduced number of incidents we are seeing throughout the borough.”
