CCTV - Public Use

Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) owns and manages Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) networks in Queenstown, Wānaka and Arrowtown.

Our objectives for camera surveillance are to support crime prevention within the district, facilitate regulatory enforcement and support public safety on Council property. 

QLDC must comply with the provisions of both the Privacy Act 1993 and the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA).

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) Policy

QLDC is finalising its Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) Policy – this will be available early in 2020.
