Council at its meeting of 28 May 2015 considered a report in respect to a Draft Policy – Video Surveillance On Public And Other Lands. It was resolved:
• That Council endorses release of the Draft Video Surveillance On Public And Other Lands Policy for public exhibition and invite submissions for a period of 42 days;
• That a report be brought back to Council on the Draft Video Surveillance On Public And Other Lands Policy following public exhibition.
The Draft Video Surveillance On Public And Other Lands Policy aims to provide a consistent and transparent approach to the use of covert and overt video surveillance equipment which may be used from time to time within public places and other lands for the protection of Council’s assets, prevention of crime and other law enforcement purposes within the Coffs Harbour local government area. The draft Policy aims to provide a clear understanding for the appropriate and lawful use of video surveillance equipment within public and other lands.
The exhibition period will be for 42 days from Wednesday 10 June 2015 to Wednesday, 22 July 2015. The Council report and Draft Video Surveillance On Public And Other Lands Policy may be viewed at Coffs Harbour City Council Administration Building, 2 Castle Street, Coffs Harbour during normal business hours and at Coffs Harbour City Council Library’s during normal opening times.
