Carl Barton, our PCSO, has asked to pass on these guidelines on drone flying.
“You cannot fly a drone within 50 meters of any building or person and should not fly further than 500 meters or lose sight of the drone at any time!! If you do, you will be in breach of CAA regulations. They should also not be flown above 400 feet. If the drone is flown over land the drone operator would need the land owners permission.
There is a lot of ignorance with regards to drone flying in regard to what can and can’t be done. Please be mindful when flying a drone.”
The CAA has a web site dedicated to promoting safe drone usage and providing their free, download Drone Assist app: dronesafe.uk
