CCTV cameras will be placed around Barton to tackle fly-tipping and antisocial behaviour.
They will be placed at a number of hotspots in the coming weeks to catch troublemakers in action.
Ward councillor Saj Patel hopes the cameras will work as a deterrent.
He said: “I have managed to negotiate the use of CCTV cameras from the police, which the council will use at a number of fly-tipping hotspots and other areas that attract anti-social issues in Barton and other parts of the city too.
“The purpose of the cameras will not only act as a deterrent, but also to gather evidence and where necessary, take robust action by prosecuting any offenders.
“I want to send out a clear message to those selfish and inconsiderate people responsible for fly-tipping that enough is enough, we will be watching them very closely and will not hesitate to prosecute them.
“The community asked me to do something about this, and that’s exactly what Gloucester City Council and I are doing. If the camera’s work we will look at purchasing our own.
“Most people are law abiding, but we want to catch the small amount of people who commit these crimes. We have found that a lot of rubbish dumped is household items rather than bulky items.
“Placing the cameras is not just about using it as a deterrent but about educating people too and encouraging people to recycle.
“We want to try the cameras out in places such as Podsmead and Westgate too.”
In the coming weeks, the camera will be placed at popular locations for fly tipping and anti-social spots including Barton Street and the alleyway at Blenheim Road in Tredworth.
Gloucester City Councillor Usman Bhaimia (L, Barton and Tredworth) said: “I have been fighting for cameras to be place for a while now but I was told it was too expensive.
“The cameras will tackle four main problems in Barton and Tredworth, including, anti-social behaviour, fly-tipping, prostitution and speeding. I think when people notice the cameras it will stop them. Barton and Tredworth is a constant eyesore and the cameras are a good thing for the area.”
