Guidance on using Drones/Unmanned Aerial Devices (UAD)
Drones are currently allowed to be flown on public land within the Borough of Fareham. Anyone wishing to fly over land owned by the Crown Estate (ie. the foreshore) should refer to the Crown Estate website .
It is the responsibility of the person flying the drone to be aware of the guidance on drone use.
Check your drone before each flight to see if it works properly
You must be able to see your drone at all times
You must avoid all applicable airspace restrictions
It is illegal to:
Fly your drone within 1 - 5km of an airfield (Solent Airport at Daedalus and Fleetlands). You should keep away from all aircrafts and helicopters. Most airports, airfields and spaceports have a flight restriction zone (FRZ). Never fly in this zone unless you have permission from the airport, airfield or spaceport. Find out more about FRZs here .
If you have privacy concerns surrounding the use of a drone, these can be reported via the Information Commissioner's Office . If you feel a drone is flying too close to you or your house, this should be reported to the police via 101.
