CCTV – Have Your Say
Parishioners may be aware of a number of incidents of criminal damage that have occurred in the village over recent years. In order to try to deter this from happening in the future, the Parish Council is considering the installation of closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras in The Street and other parts of the parish.
Please be assured that any CCTV system installed would be used purely for safety, crime prevention and detection purposes. Its use would be subject to strict procedures to comply with the Data Protection Act, and to ensure that images can only be accessed by authorised personnel and only used for lawful purposes, and would not be retained longer than necessary. Before proceeding, the Council would carry out a privacy assessment and register the system with the Information Commissioner’s Office. By law, it would be necessary to display approved “CCTV in Operation” signs in the village.
To assist us in making a decision on whether to proceed, and to help us address any concerns that may be raised, the Council invites parishioners to let us know your views and any comments or concerns you may have. Please write to us at the following address, not later than Friday 28th April 2017:
CCTV Survey, Shorne Parish Council, 70 Colyer Road, Northfleet, Kent, DA11 8AY
Alternatively, you can let us know your views by email to email@example.com.
