Dear Gordon,

A UAV is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, commonly referred to as a 'drone'.

Yours sincerely,

Hi Simon
I hope you remain safe and well.
We have no byelaws regarding the use of these from our land.  Mind you,
our land ownership is minimal - a very small area around the war memorial
and a very small village green with a number of trees.
As a small, relatively prosperous, Parish it's fair to say that most
residents' gardens are larger than the Parish's lands, and that any use of
UAV's in the Parish from the village green would soon result in that use
stopping.
I hope this answers your query fully.
Gordon Mussett
Parish Clerk
