The old cameras (on hire) in the village have now been removed as they were not considered fit for purpose despite repeated attempts to resolve the issues. On 15th April 2021, the Parish Council appointed a new contractor to install 3 new CCTV cameras in the same locations. These will improve on the downloading, accessibility and also security of the footage in accordance with Data Protection Act 2018 and also the Surveillance Camera Commissioner code of practice. Due to privacy and Data Protection Act 2018 we can only accept requests* for footage in relation to a suspected criminal activity from Staffordshire Police which should be supported by a Crime incident number. The new cameras will be installed as soon as Eon (the streetlight column owners) have provided the requested approval following electrical testing.
