Drone advice

Hampshire County Council’s Countryside Service asks that unmanned aircraft (drones) are not operated from its land holdings.This follows guidance recently issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to help drone pilots fly safely and responsibly by following the drone code. The Countryside Service is considering how drone operators could be compliant with the drone code whilst on its land holdings in the future.

If you have any questions of comments about the use of drones on Countryside Service land holdings please contact or phone 0300 555 1391.

If you have any concerns about drones being used in your area, either from a safety or privacy perspective, contact your local police on 101.
