The council has previously been advised that local governments may own and manage cameras in public spaces, but this approach has caused delays

“(It will) outline how the council will engage, discuss, assess and communicate on public space CCTV issues,” Ms McClean said.
“The policy recommends that in Boroondara’s other shopping centres, where traders are concerned about property damage and shoplifting,
that trader owned and managed CCTV models in partnership with the police are appropriate.”
