SCHEDULEArea designated as a civil enforcement area for parking contraventions and a special enforcement area
This Order applies to the whole of the County of Powys with the exception of the length of road constructed within the Sennybridge Training Area, Sennybridge in the County of Powys which runs from the junction of the roads C45 and L167 at a point approximately 0.6 kilometres east of Tirabad and crosses Mynydd Bwlch-y-Groes in a general south westerly direction to its junction with the classified road C49 at Church Hill at a point approximately 1.85 kilometres north west of Llywel, a distance of approximately 11.7 kilometres in total.
Note as to Earlier Commencement Orders
(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order designates the area described in the Schedule as a civil enforcement area and a special enforcement area for the purposes of Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004. The practical effect of the Order is to enable Powys County Council to enforce parking contraventions within the area described in the Schedule to the Order through a civil law regime, as opposed to enforcement by police or traffic wardens in a criminal law context.
These powers are exercisable by the Welsh Ministers by virtue of paragraph 30 of Schedule 11 to the Government of Wales Act 2006, pursuant to which the Welsh Ministers are the 'appropriate national authority' as regards Wales under section 92(1) of the Traffic Management Act 2004.
