Do CCTV Cameras Need Planning Permission?

Posted

CCTV not a deterrent claims Westminster CouncilWhen looking into installing a CCTV system, one of the most common questions is whether planning permission is needed for CCTV cameras from both domestic and commercial customers.

Generally in the UK, you do not need planning permission to place a CCTV camera in or on any part of your property, whether a domestic house or a commercial property. However, you may need planning permission for CCTV if you live in a conservation area or if the property concerned is a listed building. In this instance, you are advised to check with your local planning authority and get their advice on the matter.

It goes without saying that you can only install CCTV cameras on your own property. You are not allowed to fit cameras on a neighbour’s property without first gaining their consent and you are not allowed to fit cameras on to trees, streetlights or public buildings (even if the camera’s face your property) without the required full consent from the appropriate authority.
