How to object to a Proposed Traffic Regulation Order

Anyone can object to a Proposed Traffic Regulation Order. We are obliged to consider such objections before deciding whether or not to make the order. Instructions on how to go about this are included in the documents above and the press and on-street notices.

It is not possible to object to a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order.

Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders

An experimental order is much like a permanent traffic regulation order however, unlike a permanent order, an experimental order can only stay in force for a maximum of 18 months while its effects are monitored and assessed (and changes made if necessary). The Council will then decide whether or not to continue the experimental order on a permanent basis. It is not possible to lodge a formal objection to an experimental traffic regulation order until it is in force. Once it is in force, objections may be made to the order being made permanent and these must be made within six months of the day that the experimental order comes into force. If the experimental order is changed, then objections may be made within six months of the day that the experimental order is changed.

Permission to temporarily close or restrict the orders on a road

We can issue a temporary traffic regulation order (TTRO) when works on the highway, or some large deliveries, require a road to be closed or restricted temporarily to general traffic.

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 Home Office 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 road or temporary traffic orders, download the application pack which contains full details of how to apply for a traffic order and the charges relating to this.
