Car park could get cameras
PLANNING permission is being sought for automatic number plate recognition cameras at the car park at Marks & Spencer in Broughty Ferry.
Member of the council’s planning committee will be asked to approve two cameras at the car park at the Simply Food store on Brook Street.
A report to go before councillors stated: “Two cameras would be fixed to the west elevation of the building and an associated wall-mounted cabinet is also proposed on the south elevation.
“The cameras would identify registration plates for cars entering and leaving the car park.
“The cameras are proposed to assist with the day to day running and management of the car park while reducing longterm running costs for the supermarket.
“The system would allow customers to access short stay free parking while visiting the shop.”
The report added: “One objection has been received from neighbours on grounds of privacy and overlooking.”
