Guidance on flying drones

The Council has been contacted regarding concerns about drone flying in the area.

Drones should be flown in accordance with ‘The Drone Code’:-

Don’t fly near airports or airfields
Remember to stay below 400ft (120m) 
Observe your drone at all times – stay 150ft (50m) away from people and property
Never fly near aircraft Enjoy responsibly

Permission from the CAA is required for commercial operations such as the sale of photographs.
