Photography ban on urban beach is lifted - Nottingham council urge families to keep snapping.

 Add Comment


camera ban liftedNottingham City Council yesterday urged families to carry on photographing their children at the Nottingham Riviera beach, despite signs stating that they aren't allowed.

A complaint was made by a visitor to the £200,000 urban beach project regarding the rules which state: 'No photographs unless taken by our official photographer'. This prompted the Council to clarify the situation and yesterday a spokesman said: “The signs are provided so security staff can deal with anybody they feel might be taking inappropriate photographs.”

He added: “Anybody taking family snaps isn't going to get stopped. There is no problem about taking photographs on the beach.”

The beach opened at the end of July and was promoted as “free fun” for families watching their money in the recession.

A real shame as a kid this sort never happened on the Isle of Anglesy but then again times have changed a lot since this 13th I am going to be 43 and such one has to take care everywhere which i think is a mistake as kids can't be kids and parents can't be parents.

I wonder how many CCTV camera's there are watching this urban beach, and whether there have been crinimal record checks on the CCTV operators.
As for the official photographer, i could not imagine a more stressful time than doing that kind of work. Say cheese!!!

So again it's down to the whim of some jobs worth to decide if someone is taking inappropriate pictures.
