Application no. 2023/0501 - 47 Main Street, Burton Joyce


Install a 10m cabinet style galvanised column together with a 2m antennae extension and a concrete base for a CCTV camera.


The Principal Planning Officer informed members that since the publication of the report we had received one letter of objection from a local resident expressing concern that the camera will impact on the privacy of local residents and that the address on the application form was incorrect. 


He clarified to members that the purpose of the camera was to view the public realm in terms of deterring crime and anti-social behaviour and that the address on the application form was in reference to the building nearest to the CCTV column on Main Street as opposed to the building that it would be sited on.


He then went on to introduce the report.

 1       The development herby permitted shall commence before the expiration of 3 years from the date of this permission.


 2       This permission shall be carried out in accordance with the details set out in the application form, Updated site Location Plan (received on 07 November); drawing numbered TC.10.400.01, WEC CCTV Pole and Camera specification drawing (received 26.10.203).
