LOCAL NOTICE TO MARINERS No. 5 of 2017
Notice is hereby given that this Notice to Marines constitutes a public notice in accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998.
Lymington Harbour Commissioners gives notice that it permanently undertakes surveillance by closed circuit television (CCTV), which covers the waters within its statutory area and, additionally, harbour patrol boats are equipped with video cameras.
CCTV and video images are recorded in order to enable the Harbour Master to carry out his statutory functions and for the purpose of promoting maritime safety, crime prevention and public safety. They may also be used in pursuing prosecutions against offenders.
Although appropriate warning signs are sited, the nature of the areas under CCTV surveillance precludes the siting of warning signs throughout the Lymington Harbour Commission area of jurisdiction. This notice is to be considered in lieu of such signs.
Ryan Willegers - Harbour Master
