Shropshire Council

Video surveys

Video surveys are used to provide a current record of the state of the highway network in Shropshire.

Are you filming my property?

No. Care has been taken to ensure that views of people’s properties are minimised. The roadside will be captured using an oblique camera angle so as to focus on the verge and not the adjoining properties.

What are we using the survey information for?

Information collected from the video surveys supports our asset management activities. Such technology enables engineers to take ‘virtual’ drives of the network, reducing the need and associated costs of travelling out to inspect particular sites.

The images will be closely controlled, and are subject to the council’s data protection policies.
