There are 8 cameras located at various locations around the city centre monitoring numbers of people walking past. These cameras calculate numbers on an hourly basis. This data can help identify footfall trends in the city centre and helps city centre management.

Recently the camera names have been changed to reflect clearly where they are located due to some location changes. The new camera names are below :-

  • Albion Street and Bond Street (Albion Street South)
  • Albion Street at McDonalds
  • Briggate at M&S
  • Briggate at Swan Street (Briggate at McDonalds)
  • Commercial Street at Sharps
  • Headrow at Broadgate (Dortmund Square)
  • Headrow at Lands Lane (Headrow)
  • Park Row

Please note

  • We recently became aware that the data, which had been supplied to us by our data supplier, has been incorrect due to the age of the camera system recording the data and the relocation of some cameras. This has resulted in some cameras reporting lower counts, these issues have now been resolved with our data supplier. Please note that this has resulted in the new Revised Weekly Data, with all the correct data, back to 2020.
  • The Format of the data has changed as at 31/01/2014 to ensure one CSV document incorporates all camera sites. This will be the new format going forward.
  • Datasets will be published on a monthly basis in line with the British Retail Consortium (BRC) calendar (refer to PDF guidance document).
