An application to the Department for Transport has been submitted and we have been advised that a decision should be made in July 2023.
We are inviting residents to feedback on proposals which could see automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras used to reduce moving traffic contraventions at specific locations. The cameras would help enforce measures to reduce congestion and increase safety on the roads, for example at School Street schemes (pedestrian and cycle zones at certain times of day) and other areas where motor vehicle access is restricted.
This survey is now closed.
The ANPR technology will help to identify road users who continue to ignore restrictions such as:
- driving through a 'No Entry' sign
- turning left or right when instructed not to do so (making banned turns)
- driving where and when motor vehicles are prohibited
- driving on routes that are for buses and taxis only.
At present, outside of London, only the Police have the power to enforce these restrictions, but the new legislation allows Highway Authorities and Councils to undertake enforcement through the use of ANPR technology.
These are the sites which have been selected for the first phase of the ANPR scheme:
Bellemoor Road, between St James Road and Wilton Road
