Car park could get cam­eras

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
