Removal of ANPR system at Trinity Square Car Park

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Finance

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The automatic number plate recognition system at Trinity Square car park has been subject to various acts of vandalism and system failures which have resulted in reduced accessibility to the public. The system is not currently fit for purpose.


Agreed to revert the Trinity Square Car Park back to a pay and display car park.

Reasons for the decision:

The current arrangements are clearly not working and recommendation 3.2 to the report provides a realistic option to ensure the car park remains fit for purpose.

Alternative options considered:

Recommendation 3.1 to the report was rejected as doing nothing would not improve the customer experience or provide a fit of purpose car park.
