Traffic Regulation OrdersLast updated: 10 February 2010 11:45 UK
On these pages you can download Public Notices for proposed and approved changes to roads and highways, Special Events taking place within the city, changes that have been agreed to roads and highways, and Temporary Orders.
There are several stages to the introduction of a new permanent Traffic Regulation Order (TRO): First the proposed TRO is advertised by a Public Notice in "The News" and copies of the proposal are put up on the streets that will be affected, as well as on this site. This starts a three-week consultation period, where members of the public can register their support or objections (open a Notice for details).
If no objections are received, the council can go ahead and make the TRO, but if any objections are received, the proposed TRO must go before the appropriate executive member for a decision on whether to make the TRO or not, taking into account the comments received from the public during the consultation period. It is possible for items to be removed from a proposed TRO, but it is not possible to implement more than the original proposal detailed.
Once a TRO is approved, its status will be updated as such on these pages, with a draft Public Notice detailing the changes to be introduced. Once an implementation date has been set, this will be listed here, along with a copy of the Public Notice which will appear in "The News" at least two weeks before the implementation date.
While the implementation date listed on this site is the date on which the TRO becomes active, it cannot be enforced until any necessary changes are made to the roads affected, which may not be complete by this date.
If a party is dissatisfied with a decision made by an executive member, he or she can lodge a complaint with the ombudsman for investigation, while if it is thought that a TRO has been made without due regard to the law, an application can be made to the High Court as detailed within the appropriate final Public Notice.
Temporary TROs are generally associated with long-term construction or utility works where it is necessary to close, or partially close, a road or footpath for the duration of the works. There is no objection period for Temporary TROs, and their maximum duration is 18 months.
