Cassiobury Park - Added to Parks and Recreation in East of England

I have just added this to the map of places to fly your drone at Drone Scene:

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 11/09/2021. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.


Well done, Barrie :+1: Weather permitting, Iā€™m shooting the same tomorrow in Swindon :wink:

Watford Borough Council does not allow drones to be flown in any of their parks. At least that is what they are saying on the website. On the byelaws they are not saying anything about electrical powered model aircrafts or drones.

Very vague they are too, with the CAA link taking you to the Registering a Drone page.

Drones:** you cannot fly drones in a park and may face a fine of Ā£500. You can find more information on the Civil Aviation Authority website.
