There are currently 25 police force areas that
have been formed into safety camera partnerships with local authorities
and magistrates courts. These comprise:
The eight pilot areas that started from April
Cleveland, Essex, Lincolnshire, Nottingham,
Northamptonshire, South Wales, Strathclyde and Thames Valley.
The seven new areas approved as the first group
to roll-out from October 2001:
Cambridgeshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire,
Norfolk, North Wales, Staffordshire and Warwickshire.
The next 10 areas approved to start from April
Avon and Somerset, Bedfordshire,
Dyfed Powys, Fife, Gwent, Hampshire, Leicestershire, South Yorkshire,
West Yorkshire and Wiltshire.
Other partnerships are being formed and it is
expected that more will be approved to start in July and October
2002. The remainder that wish to join the scheme are expected
to submit operational cases to the Safety Camera Project Board
when they are ready during the next 12 to 18 months.
There are 43 police forces in England and Wales
and eight in Scotland. Details of these arrangements are provided
in the DTLR Memorandum submitted to the Committee.
Northern Ireland is separately administered
and is developing its own plans to develop a netting-off scheme.
