Secretary: Tony Goodman
We are always actively seeking Street Co-ordinators, to both compliment
those we already have, plus for new street cover, as there are still
quite a few village streets that are not in a scheme. If your street
isn't in a scheme and you think you could give a little of your
time to the role of a street co-ordinator then please contact us
through the library at the address above for a sign up form
Not sure if you are in a scheme? Then please, contact us and we will let you
One of the benefits of being in
a scheme is that some house insurers give a discount on premiums
to those who are, however if you have stated on you policy application
that you are in a scheme when actually you aren't, then some insurers
have been known not to pay out in the event of a claim. Insurance
Companies DO check this with the police when a claim is made.
As a co-ordinator you will receive information from the Police by
either phone or e-mail (you decide) which if relevant to your area
should by some means be passed on to your neighbours. You can commit
to as much or as little as you are prepared to do, nobody is expected
to cover more than around 20 properties (10 either side of your
property) unless you wish to, or even less than this if you prefer.
You do not have to visit all of your neighbours personally, some
of our co-ordinators put the information in their living room window
or on a noticeboard in their garden, others produce flyers, on their
computers or by hand, and pop them through their neighbours letterboxes.
Not sure if you are interested, contact the Secretary at above address
Q: Can my landlord use CCTV in
Yes, usually they will need to make
you aware of this and explain why they have installed the cameras.
Q: I want to see some CCTV footage.
Can I ask for it?
If the CCTV operator is covered by the Data
Protection Act then you have the right to ask for a copy of CCTV images of you
by making a 'Subject access request'
Q: Can I, or my neighbour,
If the cameras are installed on
residential property and are for personal domestic use, they are unlikely to
breach the Data Protection Act. This is because the use of CCTV cameras for
domestic purposes, for example, protecting a home from burglary, is exempt from
the data protection principles, even if the camera overlooks the street or
other areas near the house. If you are concerned about the use of domestic
CCTV, it may be worth contacting your local police. However, if you or your neighbour are using CCTV for business purposes, you will need
to comply with the Act.
