The Government is proposing to ban the use of CCTV for parking enforcement, subject to a very small number of exceptions that emerged following the public consultation, including parking in bus lanes. The proposals do not affect any moving traffic offences. Therefore local authorities will still be able to use CCTV to enforce against either parking or driving in bus lanes.

A copy of the Government’s response to the consultation is in the Library of the House.
