Brent Borough Councils current policy on bus/tram, lane/gate enforcement, Christmas Day?

The request was successful.

Dear Brent Borough Council,

I wish to know if you 'enforce' bus/tram, lanes/gates on Christmas Day, when no buses or trams (whichever is applicable) are in operation?

I am asking this same question to a number of Councils across the UK to find out what their policy is on enforcing contraventions on Christmas Day?

Yours faithfully,

David Blythen

Dear Liliana Nunes,

Thank you for your response.
Unfortunately, your response is not very clear.

Please could you clearly say whether Brent Borough Council will be enforcing bus lanes on Christmas Day, Monday 25 December, 2017?

By 'enforcing', I mean if a restricted vehicle were to enter a bus lane that would normally be in operation on that day, a Monday.

Would Brent Borough Council issue a Penalty Charge Notice under these circumstances on Christmas Day, Monday, 25 December, 2017?

Yours sincerely,

David Blythen

Liliana Nunes,

Dear Mr Blythen,
 
Thank you for your email.
 
As advised we will enforce any bus lane on Christmas Day that would
normally be enforceable on a Bank Holiday.
 
The Bus Lanes in the Borough operate on different days and times so it
will depend on the restrictions for each bus lane.
 
For example, if a bus lane is normally operational on Bank Holidays then
yes we will enforce the Bus Lane on Christmas day, which means a Penalty
Charge Notice will be issued to vehicles contravening the restrictions.
 
If a bus lane is not operational on Bank Holidays (the sign will say
'Except Bank Holidays) we will not enforce the bus lane on Christmas Day.
 
I hope this information has answered your query, but if you do have any
further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
 
Kind regards,
