09/11/2021 - Enabling Technology for Clean Air Zone (CAZ) ref: 1185    Recommendations Approved

Bristol City Council has been directed by Government to implement a Charging CAZ D.
The Council's proposal consists of deploying both fixed ANPR cameras and mobile systems to enforce the Clean Air Zone. The contract also includes a full back-office management system and interfaces to other applications / agencies.
A recent tender was carried out for both CAZ and Bus Lane Enforcement (BLE) devices so that the Council has one contract/one supplier. The contract was awarded prior to JAQUs decision, and as per the tender was initially for just the BLE element. A Tender Report for this was signed off by the Executive Director Growth and Regeneration on 22.06.21.
Now that JAQU have formally signed off the Council’s full business case for a Charging CAZ D, the Council needs to ‘enable’ the CAZ D element of the contract.

Decision published: 18/11/2021

Effective from: 09/11/2021

Decision:

Approval to spend £872k over 5 years to enable the ‘CAZ D’ element of the existing contract for the provision of ‘approved devices for unattended enforcement’ to start with immediate effect.
