Licence Plate Recognition Software Trial

Council wants you to stay informed about our Licence Plate program

Row of cars parked in a parking lotCumberland City Council is giving notification for the trial of license plate recognition (LPR) technology, whereby cameras mounted on a vehicle are utilised to identify parking offences. This technology works by locating vehicles within specified parking zones and determining when an offence has occurred.  This trial will only be conducted from the perspective of testing the capabilities of LPR technology and no fines will be issued.

The location of the trial will be limited to the Auburn Town Centre and surrounds, as the technology requires the parking zones to be mapped and this area provides a good cross section of situations where this technology can tested. Council’s Parking Patrol Officers will continue to monitor this area whilst the trial is underway, to ensure public safety and the availability of parking spaces for residents and customers of local businesses. The trial will commence on Monday 29 August 2022 and run for a period of four-weeks.
