CCTV Privacy Notice

The Hauraki District Council owns and operates several Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras across the District. Most of these cameras are located in outdoor public spaces such as main streets or Council reserves. There are also some internal cameras located at the Council offices and libraries.

The use of CCTV cameras is an indispensable security tool for the local Police and the Council. The cameras help deter crime and the footage can assist the Police to apprehend people that have committed an offence. There are other purposes for the Council collecting CCTV footage and these can be read in full in the Council’s CCTV Policy 2016 at www.hauraki-dc.govt.nz/policies.

The Council’s CCTV Policy also includes information about:

  • The disclosure of CCTV images or information to others (such as the police or other public sector agency);
  • How long the images are likely to be kept for; 
  • How the footage will be securely stored to minimise risk of unauthorised access;
  • The rights of an individual to access footage of themselves; and
  • The use of other visual media collected by the Council.

The Council is currently in the process of installing CCTV signage at the main access points to areas where CCTV is in operation.

For further information about privacy matters you can read the Privacy Act 1993 at www.legislation.govt.nz or visit the Office of the Privacy Commissioner website at www.privacy.org.nz.

2016/17 Annual Plan corrections

Since we adopted our 2016/17 Annual Plan in March, we’ve spotted an error. Our Annual Plan has now been amended to correct the error in the ‘Rating Funding Impact Statement’ part of the Plan. This is the part of the plan that provides an indication of the rates that are to be set. Some of the amounts included in the Plan were out of

date. Water rates are actually staying the same as last year. The updated copy of the Annual Plan is now available online. These corrections do not change what the Council intends to deliver in the 2016/17 year or its financial forecasts.

(Our Annual Plan is adopted in accordance with section 95 of the Local Government Act 2002.)
