Apply for access to information from the CCTV system

Subject to certain exemptions, you have a right to be told whether any personal data is held about you. You also have a right to a copy of that information in a permanent form except where the supply of such a copy is not possible or would involve disproportionate effort, or if you agree otherwise.

We will only give that information if it is specific to you and your identity. If release of the information will disclose information relating to another individual(s), who can be identified from that information, we are not obliged to comply with an access request unless:

  • The other individual has consented to the disclosure of information
  • It is reasonable in all the circumstances to comply with the request without the consent of the other individual(s)


Our rights

We may deny access to information where the Data Protection Act, 1998 allows. The main exemptions in relation to information held on the CCTV System are where the information may be held for:

  • Prevention and detection of crime
  • Apprehension and prosecution of offenders

We will withhold information if we believe giving this to you may be likely to prejudice any of these purposes.


How to apply for access to information

A fee of £10 is payable for each access request. Please note that full payment and two official documents as proof of your identity must be provided upon collection of your requested footage. 

These should collectively show your name, date of birth, current address and a recent full-face photograph of you.

Cheques or postal orders should be made payable to "Charnwood Borough Council".
