Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)


We use 2 aerial camera systems also known as drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The drones purchased are both DJI Phantom 3.

We will publish our flights planned in a particular parish in the district on the map below from midnight on the day of the flight until 23.59 of the same day.

We purchased the drones for 

  • Real-time surveys for planning including aerial photography for new planning developments and landscaping enforcement
  • Surveying roofs and guttering on council owned estates
  • Identifying illegal waste transfer sites and previously unidentified unauthorised caravan encampments

Our operations manual includes our CAA licence and insurance details.
