Traffic Regulation Orders

A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is a legal order which allows the council to place temporary, experimental or permanent restrictions on the use of a public highway.

Examples of a TRO include:

  • Double or single yellow
  • One-way streets
  • Residents' parking
  • Loading bays
  • Speed and weight limits

TROs are required by law to enable the police or, in the case of parking issues, the council, to enforce these restrictions.


Introducing a TRO

Most TRO's are introduced as a result of discussion with local communities or the police to address specific problems. Their purpose can be to:

  • Improve the safety of road users
  • Prevent serious damage to roads or buildings
  • Facilitate traffic flows
  • Improve or preserve local amenities

To request a TRO, email or call 01522 782070.

Only requests which meet all policy criteria will be added to a council programme for further investigation. Once under investigation, we will:

  • Consult with police, the county councillor, the parish council and other statutory consultees
  • Place a notice in the local paper
  • Place notices on site

If there are objections, we will:

  • Correspond with objectors
  • Report objections to the planning and regulation committee
  • Inform objectors of the committee's decision

The TRO process will take around 12 months to complete and, if agreed, the scheme is added to a programme of implementation.
