The City of Busselton recently made available the live-streaming of CCTV footage from the Busselton Skate Park via the City's website. Live streaming activity at popularly frequented public venues via web cam or CCTV is common practice and used by many Local Governments. The City's intention in live-streaming this footage, which captures a small area of the park, was to enable users to view the conditions at the park at any given time, like the surf cameras located at various South West beaches. The Busselton Police have access to the CCTV footage within the location of the Youth Precinct.

In response, the City has taken down the live-streaming while we get a better sense of how the community feels. We'll be guided by community opinion on this issue and therefore welcome your feedback.
