The Southampton Hackney and Private Hire Association would like to share the following message from Balfour Beatty Living Places working in partnership with Southampton City Council with our members regarding a drone aerial survey of The Quays roof between 10th October and 12th October:
As part of our role to maintain Southampton City Council highways and structures we are carrying out a drone survey and scan of the roof of The Quays Swimming and Diving complex on 10 October and on 11 & 12 October subject to requirement.
We wanted to make you aware in the event that you get reports of the drone flying in the area. The drone will only be looking down at the roof of The Quays. It will require to make several passes and closer inspections of specific aspects of the building’s roof structure. The people carrying out the inspections are trained and the pilot of the drone has the appropriate licence, permits and insurance to carry out the drone flight in this location.
