ANPR Cameras

What follows is an extract from a letter sent to all FBC Councillors regarding the deployment of Automatic Number Plate recognition cameras in the Borough

The ANPR cameras have been deployed in 27 locations across Fareham as part of a study required in relation to the air quality exceedance that has been identified by DEFRA/DfT as part of the Government’s commitment National Air Quality Plan to address nitrogen dioxide exceedences along the A27 and A32 in the vicinity of Fareham Town Centre. The survey is being funded by DEFRA and the cameras will be in situ for 1 week.  The camera locations allow monitoring of all vehicle types entering the area of exceedence and a plan of the locations is attached for your reference.

The ANPR cameras have been commissioned jointly by Fareham Borough Council and Hampshire County Council and have all the required permissions from Hampshire Highways in place.

The data from the cameras will be used to inform the evidence base for the air quality plan that will need to be developed for the A27/A32 adjacent to Fareham town centre.
