Market Weighton Big Brother – CCTV Breaches Legislation

The CCTV in Market Weighton, which is owned and run by Market Weighton Town Council (MWTC), is operating in breach of legislation.

The CCTV operator must let people know they are using CCTV. Signs are the most usual way of doing this. MWTC has failed to do this. Indeed they have three signs in place giving false information.

Formal Complaint

I have made a formal complaint against MWTC for operating the CCTV outwith legislation. In addition, as the CCTV camera signs are giving false information I have requested that they are removed at the earliest opportunity.

Freedom of Information Request (FOI)

Under the FOI I have requested from MWTC:

  • Copy of the communication with the ICO to register as a CCTV operator
  • Copy of the stated purpose for the CCTV system
  • The Privacy Impact Assessment for the CCTV system
  • Contact details of the CCTV Data Controller

Subject Access Request

I want to make a subject access request to MWTC for Data MWTC hold of me that was taken via their CCTV yesterday morning. Unfortunately, until my FOI request is addressed I am unable to do this.
