Operating drones is not illegal; however, users are restricted from repeatedly flying them in close proximity to residential addresses and doing this could lead to them being dealt with for Anti-Social behaviour or committing a S.4a/S.5 Public Order Act offence.
If you are concerned that a drone appears as though it is being used in suspicious circumstances e.g. if it continuously hovers over a particular area, please contact the Police on 101.
Winchester City Council Local Plan 2036 Launch Consultation
Winchester City Council is about to start preparation of its Local Plan 2036 and wishes to hear from local communities, indviduals and commercial businesses - in fact anyone with an interest in this matter.
The purpose of the Local Plan is to provide a planning policy framework to direct growth and change to appropriate locations, in accordance with the National Planning Guidance to achieve sustainable development.

If you feel the Local Plan should cover specific matters or exclude matters, please complete the on-line questionnaire which can be accessed at:
