It looks like the York Council will be considering reintroducing traffic restrictions on Coppergate at a meeting taking place on 30th June.
The restrictions were effectively suspended following a legal decision that they were not properly signed and that the use of ANPR enforcement cameras was therefore unlawful.
The Council had to agree to repay fines of over £385,000.
Since the legal ruling, restriction signs have remained in place but the cameras remain switched off. The police have not been enforcing restrictions because of the uncertain legal position.
Most observers feel that the present situation – where the access restrictions are effectively advisory – probably represents a step forward and many will resist any further tinkering by the York Council.
