Moving Traffic Consultation - LCC

The county council have started a 6 week public engagement exercise that will run until the 27th November on our intention to apply for the new powers to enforce moving traffic contraventions, this can be found at Enforcing moving traffic offences consultation - Lancashire County Council


The council currently enforce parking restrictions and bus lanes throughout the county and this application will allow us to enforce certain moving traffic prohibitions. It does not allow us to enforce speed limits or obstruction, these remain the responsibility of the police, however we will be able to consider enforcement of a variety of restrictions including:

  • Prohibition of turn (right left and U-turn)
  • No entry and one way streets
  • Weight limits
  • Prohibition of driving (various classes of vehicle)
  • Yellow box junctions


We have to follow an application process to get the powers granted to us in legislation and for this application we need to provide a small selection of initial sites that we will seek to enforce. When we are granted the powers the council can then seek to enforce other locations but for each new location the same 6 week engagement exercise will still need to be undertaken before enforcement can occur.


Unlike parking restrictions, the council getting this power, does not remove it from the police who will still be able to enforce illegal movements under their existing powers.


For the initial application we have chosen 3 locations with prohibition of turns and a one way street. If the application is successful we would be granted the powers to enforce from around July 2023. Enforcement would be undertaken by camera (similar to bus lanes) and for the first 6 months any "first offence" would get a warning notice rather than a PCN.


The website is live now for the public to submit there views on our initial locations and there is a general feedback section on the "have your say link" as well. We have also set up a email address for the public to submit comments.


The council will be putting out a press release and promoting the consultation on Facebook and twitter shortly but we wanted to get the information to you directly.


If you have any questions or feedback yourself please do not hesitate to use the "have your say" survey or use the moving traffic email address -
