The City of Melbourne is employing Google Earth-style camera monitoring of its property in inner city residential streets.

Linda Bond, a Carlton woman told Tom Elliott she saw a council contractor filming backyards, with the camera gazing over fences.

“I was home one afternoon and I saw a camera on a stick peering into my backyard,” Linda said.

“I walked over to the car with the camera attached and I asked the people inside what they were doing and they said they were taking photographs for the council.
