Coborn Street's School street - ANPR & Enforcement

We're waiting for Olivier R to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Tower Hamlets Borough Council,

In September 2020, signage was installed to explain that the circulation was restricted on part of Coborn Street during pickup & dropoff times of Malmesbury Primary School.
Later in the year an ANPR camera was installed to enforce these restrictions.

Could you please give us a breakdown week by week since September 14th (date of installation of signage) of:
- Number of warning letters issued for driving through during restricted hours
- Number of fines issued for driving through during restricted hours

Yours faithfully,

Olivier Rousseau

Dear London Borough of Tower Hamlets,

Given that the schools never closed for key workers’
Kids and kids with special needs, could you please communicate the safety assessment that must have been done when deciding to suspend the cameras and warning letters?
Could you also communicate the discussions that led to deciding to only issue warning letters (during a few weeks) and the reasons to delay the issuing of PCNs?

Yours sincerely,

Olivier Rousseau

Dear London Borough of Tower Hamlets,

You also gave partial information. You say that you started issuing warnings in December 2020, but did not give numbers.
Can you give a breakdown week by week of all the warning letters issued since the 1st one in December until the most recent week in your possession?

Yours sincerely,

Olivier Rousseau

London Borough of Tower Hamlets, Tower Hamlets Borough Council

Good afternoon,
 
Thank you for your e-mail below.
 
I can advise that warning Penalty Charge Notices were issued from 14th
December 2020 to 19th December 2020 and 44 warning notices were issued.
 
Yours faithfully,

Good afternoon,
 
Thank you for your e-mail.
 
The statement is factually incorrect in that there were a number of
schools that were closed, however we were not made aware of the ones that
remained open.
 
There was no safety assessment needed to switch off the cameras as they
were installed to support the air qualify around particular schools and
not road safety.
 
Due to the lockdown, the issuing of Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) did not
go live as planned and was therefore delayed.  However, following a period
of warning notices and a lockdown, we did not want to surprise parents
with PCNs at this difficult time.  Therefore, as a reminder further
warning notices were issued for a week before we moved on to issuing
PCNs.  This measure is seen as wholly appropriate given the cameras are
there to support compliance and PCNs are given as a last resort.
 
Yours faithfully,
