300 automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras to be deployed across Leeds

Comments Off on 300 automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras to be deployed across Leeds

As part of its efforts to reduce pollution and create a Clean Air Zone (CAZ), Leeds City Council has begun to install automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras for monitoring and area enforcement, a recent news report has been able to suggest.

Although the actual date when the CAZ will become operational has been delayed, the local authority will continue its project to deploy 300 purpose-built cameras equipped with automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology at over a hundred junctions around the perimeter of the zone as planned.

The new ANPR cameras will identify and register every vehicle that enters the charging zone, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and the information will then interface with the UK government’s new national clean air zone database for vehicle checking and payment.

Cllr James Lewis, Leeds City Council’s executive member for resources and sustainability, said: ‘Whilst it is disappointing that the council has been forced to postpone the Clean Air Charging Zone’s introduction because of delays to government systems, the council is doing everything it can to ensure that we are ready to implement the zone within the shortest possible timescale.

‘We are still waiting for the government to outline new timescales for their systems that they are confident can be delivered before we can finalise a new date for the charging zone’s introduction.”
