Average Speed Cameras - Motion from Full Council

At Full Council on 15 September 2021 the following motion was agreed :-


“On 18th November 2020, Council asked the then Cabinet to explore the cost and feasibility of acquiring mobile average speed cameras for future use on the Island. On 24th February 2021, Council approved a budget for 2021/22, which included an allocation of £300,000 for purchasing these cameras.


Given that this capital allocation is for the current financial year, Council urges the Cabinet to proceed with the development of a business case to investigate these mobile average speed cameras, identifying the costs and effectiveness of the use of the cameras across the Island, taking advice from the Policy Committee for Regeneration and Transport. “


The Committee is therefore requested to formulate comments for submission to the Cabinet on the acquisition of mobile average speed cameras.
