Moving Traffic Restrictions

20 May 2022

The Council are currently consulting on the potential enforcement of moving traffic restrictions e.g. ‘one way only’ ‘no right turn’ and weight limits.  Currently, the Police enforce these restrictions in person, but the Government is now giving local Councils the option to apply for powers to enforce moving traffic restrictions using ANPR cameras under a civil enforcement regime.

The Council has not yet made a decision regarding if to adopt these powers.  However, if the Council were to apply for these powers, cameras could be used to enforce moving traffic restrictions at priority locations in the Borough with known road safety and congestion concerns, for the benefit of residents and businesses.  A list of 13 sites has been suggested in Chester, Ellesmere Port and Vale Royal.  

We would like to hear your views before the consultation end date of 8 June 2022.  Full details of the consultation can be found here
