Have your say on the introduction of enforcement by camera for moving traffic offences. 3 March to 15 April 2022. This consultation is closed.

In July 2020, the government announced plans to improve cycling and walking uptake in Gear change - a bold vision for cycling and walking.

As part of this strategy, the Department for Transport is changing the way moving traffic contraventions are enforced. Currently, only London and Welsh local authorities have powers to enforce these restrictions by the issue of a penalty charge notice.

The new regulations will be coming into effect in summer 2022, as a result, a number of new contraventions will become enforceable by councils rather than the police.

These new powers will enable enforcement of the following restrictions by camera:

One way street sign

One way streets


No right turn sign

Banned turns


Pedestrian zone sign

Pedestrian zones






No entry sign

No entries


Yellow boxed junction

Yellow boxed junctions


Cycle, bus and taxi routes sign

Cycle and bus routes


7.5t weight limit sign

Restricted access/weight limits


School keep clear road markings

Stopping on school keep clear markings


Herefordshire Council has indicated its intention to the Department for Transport to adopt these powers in order to promote a safe environment for all road users and to allow traffic to flow freely.

Based on previous complaints and travel data, we have identified a number of locations that may benefit from this type of enforcement.

Have your say

We asked for your feedback on this proposal so that we can give full consideration to the exact location where cameras may be deployed.

What happens next

We will consider the feedback from this survey, and other vehicle monitoring surveys, in order to inform a decision by the Cabinet Member, Infrastructure and Transport. If we decide to proceed then we will make an application for the designated powers to the government.
