Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order designates the County of Ceredigion as a civil enforcement area for parking contraventions, and as a special enforcement area, for the purposes of Schedules 8 and 10 to the Traffic Management Act 2004. The practical effect of the Order is to enable Ceredigion County Council to enforce parking contraventions within the County of Ceredigion through a civil law regime, as opposed to enforcement by police or traffic wardens in a criminal law context.
