Drone Usage

Sefton Council has developed a Drone Policy in response to a variety of issues created by drone use on Council owned land, public open spaces and in protected landscapes in Sefton.

As such, we have a number of restrictions within a Coastal Public Space Protection Order (PSPO), and the Natural England SSSI Designation among other regulations which protect our coastline from various harms. 

Where Sefton Council is the landowner or controller, drones may not be flown without permission. Failure to obtain written permission could lead to hefty fines.

You can read the Sefton Council Drone Policy.

You can also read this document on paramotors and recreational drone flights.

As with all filming requests, permission is not guaranteed and the minimum time frame for applications to be reviewed is 5 working days for non-coastal locations.
