Scarborough town centre footfall figures

We have footfall cameras at three different sites within Scarborough town centre monitoring the number of people walking past.

Camera One is located above 88 Westborough and camera’s Two and Three are located on opposite sides of the road above 28 and 62 Newborough.

These cameras calculate numbers on an hourly basis and feed data back to Springboard, a leading provider of locational performance insights. Each month, Springboard provides us with a report showing the percentage change in footfall figures.

The data can help identify footfall trends in the town centre.
