It's difficult to be precise without knowing the legislation used and the legal status of the road but let's say its public highway maintained at public expense and traffic is denied entry either under section 1 or 14 Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. Section 1 will require consultation and public notices to follow http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1996/2489/regulation/7/made section 14 ...

It depends on what legislation has been used to implement it. For example. Temporary road closures to faciliate road works are possible under section 14 Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 but a permanent no access for motor vehicles would be done under section 1 Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. Notices would be advertised and/or placed in the street. It is also possible for a stopping up order ...

Elvis is right. I've had enough too. It is just going round and round in circles.

This is becoming so tedious having to keep correcting your spin on things. Some councils were attempting to by-pass the 3 appeal stages of civil parking enforcement under the Traffic Mamanagement Act 2004 by cancelling their off street parking places traffic orders and using contract law instead (like private parking companies) to enforce penalties. Robert Goodwill got wind of this and ...

majorp once relied upon his fellow cohorts at pepipoo.com where he was known as Bluedart. You can view publicly his 185 pages of posts going back to 2004. http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?act=Search&nav=au&CODE=show&searchid=ad8ed6b4ac7a36988367905cdc484b58&search_in=posts&result_type=posts but even the site moderators lost patience and terminated his so called life long membership in ...

Yet again more bluster and yet again you fail to direct us to the law that you claim exists. The others are intelligent enough to consider a debate and decide which side is backed by rationale and evidence and which is not. Your side is not. That's down to you and your poor unsubstantiated arguments. Nobody's been sucked in, you just suck at proving your point.

Yet again you fail to name the law. I've already explained in my previous post above from 27th Jan what parking contraventions could be enforced by local authorities using approved cameras in their car parks. Cameras are either monitored live to spot a contravention or a person is tasked with reviewing recordings to spot contraventions that have occurred. Local authorities have 14 days from the ...

Here we go again. Round and round the garden like a teddy bear. Their answer is exactly as I said it would be. That they do not use CCTV/ANPR in their off street car parks as the basis for gathering evidence to send out penalty charge notices under the Traffic Management Act 2004. See my first post above from 25th Jan. Just because they don't do so does not mean they cannot and no where ...

ANPR cameras are linked to a central control unit that is monitored by people. If a car is seen parked in an area of a car park where it should not be for example, then a PCN can be served by post based on evidence gained through the ANPR approved device. Its works the same way as ANPR used for bus lane and box junction enforcement. Those ANPR cameras are monitored by people and those people ...

If private parking companies are able to use ANPR to detect parking contraventions then it is equally possible for a council who uses ANPR to do the same. Most of the parking contravention descriptions below can be detected using an approved ANPR device. Especially so if the pay & display machines require reg numbers to be inputted and are linked to the same computer system as the ANPR device(s). ...
