‘Robo-warden’ to target Swansea’s problem parking

30/10/2014
Swansea council is set to introduce a new “robo-warden” camera in order to deal with parking problems.

Plans are underway to bring in the new parking enforcement vehicle to monitor illegal parking in problem areas, such as outside schools and around the Liberty Stadium.

The city’s first mobile parking vehicle will be mounted with a camera. These types of monitoring tools, as well as static cameras, are already in use across parts of the UK, and in the past five years have issued 10 million fines for a total £300 million.

Further plans to target illegal and problem parking include an increase in parking enforcement patrolling hours. Swansea council’s services will operate from 7am until 10pm, seven days a week.

Swansea council’s cabinet member for environment and transportation Mark Thomas, said: “Residents continually contact the council to complain that they can’t park in their street even when they have a parking permit.

“Often this is down to motorists parking in residents bays without permission.

“The extension of the operating hours will give the parking enforcement patrols the opportunity to get out into the communities and tackle these issues and help residents to park.”

The council also confirmed that the extended hours would aid in tackling issues with parking around Liberty Stadium on match days, Wales Online reported.
