Plans to install cameras in an Ottery car park have been submitted.

Sainsbury's wants to install a four metre-high column to host CCTV cameras in the car park of its Hind Street store.

Planning applications, made by Alder king on behalf of the supermarket giant, also include plans for 13 signs around the car park detailing the rules.

The signs will outline conditions of parking at the store - giving Sainsbury's shoppers two hours of free parking.

Example signs included in the application say: "Camera controlled parking with a 2 hour parking restriction."

They add: "We are using ANPR cameras and/or handheld cameras to capture images of vehicle number plates and to calculate the length of stay."

The signs go on to add that those found in breach of the conditions face a parking charge notice of £70.
