Decision details

Bus Gate Enforcement HI12 (20/21)

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The use of physical infrastructure to protect bus gates/routes has traditionally been employed in West Sussex but this has proven costly and unreliable 


Automatic number plate recognition enforcement cameras (ANPR) are routinely used by many local authorities as a more cost effective and reliable method of control than Bus Gates. The County Council does not currently exercise bus lane enforcement powers.


The installation of ANPR cameras will be funded from Section 106 funds.  The long term maintenance and replacement of equipment will be funded by the enforcement of the regulations.


The Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure has approved the introduction of the civil enforcement of bus gate contraventions in West Sussex using automatic number plate recognition cameras.
