Salford City Council - Record of Decision


I David Lancaster, Lead Member for Community Safety and Environment, in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council Constitution do hereby approve the Salford City Council CCTV Policy and Code of Practice (July 2020).


The Reasons are that Salford City Council’s previous CCTV Policy and Code of Practice was published in 2018 and while accurate in its contents, was felt to be an unnecessarily lengthy document, and not user friendly or accessible to both partners and members of the public.  A revised and more concise CCTV Policy and Code of Practice was therefore drafted, the content of which is deemed more appropriate to open circulation. It has been shared in draft form with the British Standards Inspectorate, who inspect Salford’s CCTV operation as part of our annual audit under BS 7958 (Closed circuit television (CCTV). Management and operation) and received positive feedback. 


Options considered and rejected were: Not to revise the existing Salford City CCTV Policy and Code of Practice
