Public open spaces

A number of CCTV cameras are in use within the borough for the purposes of the prevention and detection of crime, the maintenance of public order, the reduction of anti-social behaviour, including nuisance and vandalism and the enhancement of a sense of safety by the public. The way in which the cameras are used, the manner in which data is collected and the way in which it is disclosed are very carefully controlled. 

The Data Protection Act 2018 allows individuals to request CCTV footage. Requests can be made in relation to:

  • police investigations
  • legal proceedings/ insurance purposes
  • the right to access (also known as subject access requests)

To submit a request for access to our CCTV please complete our online request form.

Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA) are recommended in the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice, issued by the Surveillance Camera Commissioner in June 2013 in accordance with Section 30 (1) (a) of The Protection of Freedom Act 2012. The purpose of the PIA is to ensure that privacy risks are minimised while allowing the aims of the project to be met whenever possible by taking into account the CCTV camera or system effect on individuals and their privacy, with regular reviews to ensure its use remains justified.
