Permission to temporarily close a public right of way

We can issue a temporary traffic regulation order (TTRO) when works on the highway, or some large deliveries, require a public right of way to be closed or restricted temporarily to the public.
We also have limited powers to make temporary traffic regulation orders relating to special events taking place on the public highway (e.g. ceremonies, parades, festivals, funfairs, street parties). There is a Government Guide to holding an event on the highway which contains more details.

PLEASE NOTE - Due to the legal processes involved and the need to advertise any proposed closure, we require SIX WEEKS notice to process a temporary traffic order.

For further information on closing a public right of way or temporary traffic orders, please contact the Public Rights of Way Team using the contact details above.
