EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

The Bus Lane Contraventions (Penalty Charges, Adjudication and Enforcement) (England) Regulations 2005 (S.I. 2005/2757), made under section 144 of the Transport Act 2000, provide for the enforcement of bus lane restrictions through the imposition, by approved local authorities, of penalty charges in respect of contraventions of such restrictions. This Order specifies Gloucestershire as an approved local authority for these purposes.

The Order also makes a consequential amendment to the Bus Lane Contraventions (Approved Local Authorities) (England) Order 2005 (S.I. 2005/2755) to add Gloucestershire County Council to the list of approved local authorities set out in the Schedule to that Order.

No impact assessment has been undertaken, since the Order is concerned with the enforcement of existing traffic restrictions and prohibitions and does not therefore constitute an additional burden on business. The costs incurred by local authorities undertaking enforcement are expected to be paid from the penalty charge income.
