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 email@example.com 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.
