Coppergate traffic restriction enforcement

Automatic number plate recognition cameras (ANPR) in place along Coppergate check number plates against permitted vehicles' registration details.

If any unauthorised vehicle is found to be on Coppergate during restricted hours, we'll issue a penalty charge notice (PCN) to the vehicle owner.

Penalty charge notices

If you receive a penalty charge notice (PCN), full instructions on how and where to pay, who to contact and how to appeal will be included.
