Flying Into Trouble

October 29, 2018, By

Aerial video footage is becoming increasingly popular in marketing property schemes and developments.

However, the rules around where drones can fly and what they can and can’t film is an evolving area, especially in the post GDPR world and developments where residents are already in place.

If you are planning on using drone footage, or have recently captured some film, it is worth your while to familiarise yourself with some ground rules and methods of best practice.

I was asked recently to draft an article for Place NW which covers the GDPR implications of aerial filming, along with pointers on how developers can establish a lawful basis for capturing aerial footage.
