Traffic information

Traffic cameras and CCTV

Traffic safety, information and management

Cameras are installed around the county predominantly for managing traffic and the highway. We use these cameras to provide traffic information through various media services, to manage traffic in urban areas through the use of an Urban Traffic Control computer system and to monitor weather conditions of highway, in conjunction with their countywide Ice Detection System.

Traffic camera images are available on the National Highways website.

Crime prevention and community safety

A number of town centres in Devon have CCTV systems including Exeter, Barnstaple, Newton Abbot and Exmouth. These are generally operated by the district council but in Exeter the city centre CCTV is jointly operated by Devon County Council and Exeter City Council in partnership with the police. Cameras are operated under a strict code of practice to comply with legal requirements.

How do I request access to CCTV footage?

Public CCTV footage can only be disclosed strictly in accordance with legislation and criteria contained in the code of practice. You have a right to view personal information (data) which is held about you, unless there are some specific reasons why the Council is not obliged to provide that information.

If you wish to request this information you can make a subject access request to our Information Governance team.
