CCTV & ShipCam
Proudly supported by Sunshine Coast Council’s grants program
From our application, March 2020
Describe your project, ie what are you going to do? *
The lighthouses are exposed, and the old lighthouse was the subject of a recent break in attempt, and is susceptible to fire. The area has drinking parties, including on to the roof of the generator shed.
There have been a number of graffiti attacks which we paint over immediately. We have applied anti graffiti coating but it needs redoing.
We believe cameras would act a deterrent to illegal activity, and provide evidence after the fact.
People in the local area report activity, but the remote log in would give us the ability to safely assess and alert the police.
We will provide Council and Police with recordings and provide remote access as required.
The installation meets Council’s policy for Public Space Closed Circuit Television and we will operate in accordance with Council’s Standard Operating Procedures for Public Space Closed Circuit Television.
We acknowledge privacy requirements and will provide signage as per Council’s Signage Sample and limit camera angles.
We will factor in cost of long term maintenance and update our Operational Procedures Manual.
The ShipCam is an initiative of the Friends
but will piggyback on the security camera installation
We have a heritage Exemption Certificate issued by the Department of Environment and Science for these works
