Dear Essex County Council,
Can you please advise if you have any byelaws relating to the use off UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) from your land, and if so can you please either provide a copy or the link to their location on a website.
If you do not have any byelaws, do you have any other policies relating to the use of UAVs on your land?
Can you finally advise if these have been reviewed in relation to CAP722C (https://publicapps.caa.co.uk/modalapplic...) published by the Civil Aviation Authority in December 2020.
Thank you for your recent request for information.
Your request is covered by the Environmental Information Regulations, which requires us to respond within 20 working days.
Please Note - Due to Government guidance in relation to the Coronavirus we are currently working remotely which may affect our ability to access records which are held in hard copy, or within our archives. Additionally, if the situation worsens and staff become unwell, we may not be able to gather from them the information to satisfy your request in full. We will continue to disclose all electronic data we have access to, and any undisclosed data held will be made available to you once we are able to access the material, subject to any applicable exemptions.
We will determine and let you know whether we hold the information you have requested and consider whether we are able to release the information or if it is exempt from disclosure.
ECC does not usually charge for providing information to its requestors as the provision of electronic copies is negligible, however under certain circumstances we may have to do so if providing the information costs more than £25. We will let you know before we do any work that would incur a charge.
