Thank you for your email received by us on 17 June 2017 asking for information about CCTV cameras.
Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm that we hold the information you require. Your asked:
Please inform me which statutory act covers the requirement to advertise the location of approved cctv cameras located on public highways being used to capture images of traffic offences
The power for us to use cameras to issue Penalty Charge Notices(PCNs) for traffic contraventions on the red route network comes from the following Acts:
The Traffic Management Act 2004
The London Local Authorities and Transport for London Act 2003
The London Local Authorities Act 1996
We are not aware of any statutory requirement within these, or any other Act, for us to advertise the location of any of our enforcement cameras.
If this is not the information you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.
