What information is recorded when using LPR?

The LPR system takes a photo of the vehicle number plate. If the same licence plate is recorded in the same location at the end of the regulated time period, a second photo is taken.

Both photos are retained as evidence of an offence taking place as we currently do.

The system records the day, time and location of the vehicle.

If you do not overstay in the parking bay the photo is automatically deleted from the system. Nothing is recorded.

Before LPR, Council parking officers would take several photos of your vehicle, recording the date, time and location as well as the vehicle's VIN (vehicle identification number) and a photo of the signage in the area.

Your VIN is not recorded under LPR.
