The flying of drones, irrespective of size, is discouraged in our parks and open spaces within this council.

The majority of our parks and open spaces are open to the public at any time and we are required to ensure that they are safe for all to use.

If you intend to fly a drone please be aware of your responsibilities as a drone user:

  • to know how to fly your drone safely, and do so within the law
  • to understand that the operator is legally responsible for every flight
  • ensure any images you obtain using the drone do not break privacy laws
  • it is a criminal offence to endanger the safety of an aircraft in flight

Please refer to GOV.UK - Drones: how to fly them safely and legally and the UK Civil Aviation Association rules and categories of drone flying
